THE VOICE is no longer far ahead of DANCING WITH THE STARS on Mondays.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.


NBC:  THE VOICE fell 0.2 from last Monday to 2.1, which is also down half a point from where it was on the parallel night in 2015.  TIMELESS held at 1.2.

ABC:  Note that early numbers may be subject to slight adjustment this afternoon, as the network’s San Francisco affiliate carried the MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL simulcast (but mostly out of prime time).  DANCING WITH THE STARS is up 0.1 for now to 1.8, just 0.3 behind THE VOICE.  CONVICTION was steady at 0.8.

CBS:  KEVIN CAN WAIT lost 0.1 to 1.5, while MAN WITH A PLAN remained at 1.3.  2 BROKE GIRLS (1.4) and THE ODD COUPLE (1.1) each gained 0.1.  SCORPION stayed at 1.2.

FOX:  GOTHAM (1.1) and LUCIFER (1.0) each lost 0.1.

CW:  The Houston MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL simulcast was in primetime, so fans of SUPERGIRL and JANE THE VIRGIN shouldn’t get excited by their current 1.0/0.6 numbers.

The networks air their regular line-ups tonight, before the holiday weekend disrupts things for a few nights.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.


CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top cable programs from this day.
