voice-ratings-dec-16-13.JPGFast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 16, 2013

The final performances on “The Voice” carried NBC to a ratings win Monday, but the show will likely be down from last week (the network’s Baltimore affiliate carried the “Monday Night Football” game) and off significantly from last fall’s final performance episode. It did, however, help “The Sing-Off” score better ratings than its last few outings.

Elsewhere Monday, “Mike & Molly” grew by a couple tenths of a point in adults 18-49 on CBS and scored its biggest overall audience since its season premiere. “Hostages” ticked up as well. FOX’s “Almost Human” was down vs. last week.

NBC brought in 11.1 million viewers and a 6.8 rating/11 share in households, pending updates for the local NFL telecast. CBS (6.9 million, 4.5/7) came in second. ABC (4.4 million, 2.8/4) currently sits in third, also pending updates for a local “Monday Night Football” broadcast in Detroit. FOX (3.9 million, 2.5/4) finished fourth, and The CW (1.1 million, 0.7/1) trailed.

The adults 18-49 title also went to NBC, which scored a 3.0 rating in the demographic. CBS took second with a 1.9. FOX, 1.2, edged ABC, 1.1, for third, and The CW posted a 0.4.
