After topping the list of Live+7 gains with a big 2.3 18-49 rating lift, NBC’s new series Revolution received more good ratings news this morning. The futuristic drama reversed its ratings downtrend since the premiere with a 3.4/9 in adults 18-49 last night, up 13% from last week (10% from its fast national last Monday) to match its best Live+Same Day demo rating since the series debut. Its lead-in, The Voice (4.8/12), held steady, up a tenth from its fast national last week and even with the final. NBC extended its Monday winning streak among 18-49 to four weeks.
ABC’s Dancing With The Stars (2.1/5) was even with its fast national last Monday, down a tenth from the final, while Castle (2.0/5) was down 9% in 18-49 while hitting a season high in total viewers (10.9 million). ABC won the night in total viewers.
Once again CBS’ Monday fast nationals were likely inflated by an NFL pre-emption in San Diego. Last week, all Monday series were adjusted down between one and three tenths in the finals, so the current modest week-to-week gains for How I Met Your Mother (3.2/9, +3%), Partners (2.1/6, +11%), Mike & Molly (3.0/7, up 7%) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.0/5, up 5%) are questionable. Surprisingly, even with the football preemption, 2 Broke Girls (3.3/8) was down a tenth from last week.
Ratings for Fox’s NLCS baseball continue to be soft. Reliable, time zone-adjusted numbers will be available later today but in the fast nationals, Game 2 drew a 1.3 rating in 18-49, down 32% from the slow Game 1 on Sunday.
The CW’s 90210 (1.1 million total viewers, 0.7/2 in 18-34, 0.6/2 in 18-49) rebounded from its soft season opener last Monday, up 13% in total viewers and two tenths each in 18-34 and 18-49. Gossip Girl (760,000; 0.6; 0.4) was flat.
