blacklist-sept-30-ratings.JPGFast National ratings for Monday, Sept. 30, 2013

Ratings on the broadcast networks were for the most part down a little bit Monday, as you’d expect following the rush of premiere week. The order of things stayed pretty much the same as well — “The Voice” was the night’s top show in both viewers and adults 18-49, leading NBC to a prime-time win.

“The Blacklist” also held up pretty well for NBC, dropping only two tenths of a point in the 18-49 demo in its second week. “Sleepy Hollow” also remained solid for FOX, and “Bones” was up some over last week. The news was not as good for CBS, which dipped across the board and saw the premiere of “We Are Men” draw ratings below those of the quickly canceled “Partners” last year. “Dancing With the Stars” slipped for ABC, but “Castle” held steady.

NBC brought in 13.5 million viewers and an 8.2 rating/13 share in households for the night, topping ABC’s 12.2 million and 7.8/12 for the overall lead. FOX (7.5 million, 4.5/7) came in third. CBS finished fourth with 6.8 million viewers and a 4.4/7. The CW (1.05 million, 0.6/1) brought up the rear.

NBC’s lead among adults 18-49 was wider — it earned a 4.3 rating in the demographic, easily beating FOX’s 2.6. ABC and CBS tied for third at 2.1, and The CW posted a 0.4.
