“The Voice” shifted to a later time Monday, and its ratings took a hit as a result. NBC’s singing show scored its lowest Monday ratings of the season — although it still grabbed the top spot among adults 18-49.

FOX’s “Almost Human” also dropped some after its Sunday premiere, although it’s running a little bit ahead of the adults 18-49 average for “Bones” in the timeslot. “How I Met Your Mother” and the rest of CBS’ comedies were steady, but “Hostages” dropped vs. last week. ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and “Castle” are currently showing gains over last week but will come down some as a couple of affiliates aired the “Monday Night Football” game. “Hart of Dixie” and “Beauty and the Beast” dipped a little for The CW.

ABC averaged 13.7 million viewers and an 8.9 rating/14 share in households for the night, pending updates for the “MNF” telecast in Boston and Charlotte. NBC (9.5 million, 5.7/9) came in second. FOX’s 6.85 million viewers and 4.1/6 edged CBS’ 6.6 million and 4.3/6 for third. The CW (867,000, 0.6/1) trailed.

NBC led the 18-49 demographic with a 3.0 rating. FOX and ABC tied for second at 2.3, and CBS finished fourth with a 2.0. The CW was well back with a 0.3.
