NBC AGAIN TRIUMPHS ON MONDAY AMONG YOUNGER VIEWERS

It was another rigorous ratings battle between ABC, NBC and CBS Monday night, with ABC winning it among total viewers; NBC, among younger viewers; and CBS placing second in both categories. Two hours of Dancing with the Stars and an hour of Castle made ABC the most-watched network with an average of 12.41 million viewers. With two hours of The Voice and an hour of Revolution NBC was way out in front among viewers 18-49, however with a 4.2 rating and an 11 share. (Second-place CBS pulled a 2.8/7 and ABC, a 2.2/5.) CBS, whose comedy lineup once held sway on Mondays, put up respectable numbers throughout the evening except during the 8:30 p.m. half-hour, when its new Partners sank to fourth place with 6.34 million viewers. Still, that was nearly twice the number of viewers that Fox was able to draw for its failing The Mob Doctor in the 9:00 p.m. hour. It averaged just 3.46 million viewers. Among viewers 18-49, it had a death-dealing 0.9 rating and a 2 share.
