NBC rode the return of The Voice to the 18-49 demo victory, but ABC drew more total viewers.
Speaking of The Voice, the premiere was up a healthy five tenths from last spring's debut, but way down from last fall's opener. After a months long break, Revolution returned to a two tenths drop, which I'm sure is not what NBC was hoping for. Still, it's doing more than good enough to earn a second season.
Faced with tougher competition, week two of Dancing With The Stars fell nearly an entire ratings point from last week's premiere. Castle dropped a tenth as well, but remains solid. FOX's Bones fell two tenths, as did The Following. This represents a series low for the latter drama, which has already been renewed for next year.
CBS had a pretty down night, with HIMYM and Rules of Engagement both hitting season lows. Hawaii Five-0 also dropped a bit. 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly both rose small amounts, but neither is doing what they were back in the fall. The CW's Carrie Diaries was even with last week's 0.4, and is still likely to be canceled.
