Only one show on network TV last night beat Sunday’s Game of Thrones and its 2.8 rating–even though that show is available in only 1/3 of US households.

NBC:  The one winner, naturally, was THE VOICE, but it was close, as the singing competition stayed even with last week’s Monday low 3.2.  The season finale of REVOLUTION didn’t get much of a bounce, up 0.1 to 2.0.

ABC:  THE BACHELORETTE hit a new series low 1.7, down 0.2 from last week, and MISTRESSES showed little spark in its premiere with 1.2.

FOX:  The network’s highest rated show was a rerun of RAISING HOPE with 0.8.  A FOX run of ANGER MANAGEMENT had a 0.7, and THE GOODWIN GIRLS tied with a NEW GIRL rerun at 0.6.

CBS:  An all-rerun night highlighted by 1.0s for 2 BROKE GIRLS and HAWAII 5-0.

CW:  Reruns at 0.2/0.1.
