The Voice Premiere Ratings Down Significantly From Last Fall

Ratings juggernaut, Big Bang Theory, scheduled on a Monday opposite The Voice and Dancing with the Stars. due to Thursday Night Football, did it’s damage last night. While it’s premiere numbers were down vs last year, both editions had a combined rating of 5.3.

The Voice premiere numbers, on the other hand, were significantly lower compared to last fall. A 3.9 vs a 5.1! DWTS dipped nearly half a point vs last week. Good job on that counter programming strategy, CBS!

Meanwhile, Scorpion posted respectable premiere numbers.
