Notes: In a change of pace from the last few weeks, NBC didn't win both the 18-49 demo and total viewer races. NBC still won pretty handily in the demos, but ABC took home the total viewer crown.
As usual, The Voice was the highest rated program of the night in all metrics. Revolution dropped 6% in its third week, but is still doing more than well enough to be out of danger. How I Met Your Mother dropped 11% from week one. Partners fell 13% from its already bad premiere numbers, making it all but certain to get the axe. 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly both fell 8%, while Hawaii Five-0 rose 6%. Although considering how horrific "Hawaii"'s numbers were last week, that small of a rise should in no way placate CBS.
Dancing With The Stars dropped a whopping 20% in the demos from last week, while lead-out Castle dropped 10%. Not a good night for ABC among the 18-49 crowd. Over on FOX, Bones dropped 9%, but the real story of the night is The Mob Doctor, which dropped a further 23% from its frighteningly low week two numbers. To put things in perspective, not only was Mob Doctor the lowest rated show of the night on the big four networks, it came in nearly 50% below the next highest rated show. I know it's a cheap pun, but The Mob Doctor is gonna get whacked, and soon.
