TV Ratings: ‘Gotham’ returns low as ‘Dancing,’ ‘Voice’ lead Monday

Fast National ratings for Monday, April 13, 2015.

The Monday ratings race continues to be fairly basic. ABC wins comfortably overall thanks to “Dancing with the Stars,” while NBC wins comfortably in the key demo thanks to “The Voice.”

“Dancing with the Stars” was even up from last week and while “The Voice” dipped a hair in the key demo, it added a few viewers.

Monday's biggest notable was the return of “Gotham” after over a month away, which took a steep dive in all measures, but still helped “The Following” move up again after last week's series lows.

And while “The Originals” and “Jane the Virgin” both got huge bumps from last week, The CW had baseball preemptions in New York City, so these numbers are coming down.

Let's get to the numbers…

Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 2.4 rating for Monday night, tops in the key demographic. CBS was second with a 1.8 key demo rating, followed by the 1.7 key demo rating for ABC. FOX averaged a 1.3 key demo rating for fourth, while The CW had an inflated 0.6 key demo rating for the night.

Overall, though, ABC averaged an estimated 11.165 million viewers and a 7.2 rating/12 share for Monday primetime. NBC was second with 9.15 million viewers and a 5.6/9, just ahead of the 5.4/9 and 8.63 million viewers for CBS. There was a big drop to FOX's 3.95 million viewers and 2.5/4. The CW's inflated night averaged 1.43 million viewers and a 1.0/2.
