Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., April 20) -- The Voice sags but still sets pace

Another two-hour hunk of NBC’s The Voice paced Monday’s prime-time ratings without dominating them.

Airing as usual from 7 to 9 p.m., The Voice averaged 341,726 D-FW viewers while ABC’s competing Dancing with the Stars drew 285,934. From 7:30 to 8 p.m., CBS’ Mike & Molly outdrew DWTS with 299,882 viewers and ran close behind that half-hour segment of The Voice (320,804 viewers).

Mike & Molly won its time slot among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds; The Voice ran first from 7 to 7:30 p.m. and 8 to 9 p.m.

CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles took the 9 p.m. hour in both ratings measurements with respective totals of 223,168 and 72,537 viewers.

Fox’s 8 p.m. episode of The Following was the night’s least-watched show among the Big Four broadcast networks with 76,714 total viewers. The low-rung prime-time finisher with 18-to-49-year-olds was Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast (31,538 viewers).

Here are Monday’s four-way local news derby results.

Gannett8 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC ran first among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions and added a 6 p.m. win in the 25-to-54 measurement. CBS11 drew the most total viewers at 6 p.m.

NBC5 and Gannett8 tied for first place at 5 p.m. in both ratings realms.
