Ratings: Voice Lowers With Performance Finale, HIMYM Slips to Season Low, Hostages Ticks Up
NBC’s The Voice on Monday night drew 12.7 million total viewers and a 3.3 demo rating, per finals — dipping 4 percent and two tenths week-to-week and also down from its previous two performance finales (Season 3: 13.4 mil/4.2, Season 4: 12.7 mil/3.7).
Leading out of that, The Sing-Off did 7.3 mil and a 2.0, up sharply from its most recent, Voice-free telecast (4.6 mil/1.3) but down 7 percent and four tenths from last Monday’s premiere.
Over on CBS, a heartwarming How I Met Your Mother (7.7 mil/2.7) dipped 10 percent in the demo to a season low, 2 Broke Girls (7.6 mil/2.3) was down 15 percent, Mike & Molly (8.9 mil/2.2) rose two tenths (from last week’s repeat-hampered episode) and Mom (7.4 mil/1.9) slipped 10 percent. Hostages capped the Eye’s night with 5.1 million total viewers (an eight-week high) and a 1.2 rating (ticking up a tenth).
Elsewhere, Fox’s Almost Human (5.3 mil/1.6) dipped another 11 percent… ABC’s Christmas Light Fight (4.0 mil/1.0) fell 28 percent from its premiere.
