A night of reruns on one network didn’t change much anywhere else.

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).

NBC:  THE VOICE dropped 0.2 from last week’s cycle premiere to 3.2, but BLINDSPOT stayed at 1.8.

ABC:  THE BACHELOR aired its regular pre-finale “Women Tell All” episode, dropping 0.3 to 2.2, yet CASTLE held at 1.1.

CW:  Just like last week, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND and JANE THE VIRGIN were at 0.3s.
