Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, April 11, 2016

Note: The CW was pre-empted in Chicago for a major league baseball game, which will likely result in greater than usual adjustments in the final nationals.

The numbers for Monday:

Time Show Adults 18-49 Rating/Share Viewers (millions)
8 p.m. The Voice (NBC) (8-10 p.m.) 2.2/7 10.15

“Dancing With the Stars” was Monday’s biggest gainer in the ratings, scoring a 2.0  in adults 18-49 and rising 0.2 vs. last week. Most of the rest of the broadcast slate was even or down a little.

Also on ABC, “Castle” (1.1) was even with last week. CBS’ “Supergirl” had the steepest drop of the night, falling 0.4 vs. its “Flash” crossover two weeks ago and finishing with a 1.3. “Scorpion” (1.6) was even with its last episode, and “NCIS: Los Angeles” ticked up.

“The Voice” (2.2) dipped a tenth for NBC with its first live episode of the spring, while “Blindspot” was even with last week’s fast nationals at 1.4 (it adjusted down to 1.3 in the finals). FOX’s “Gotham and “Lucifer” are each off a tenth. The CW was pre-empted in Chicago, so accurate numbers for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Jane the Virgin” won’t be available until the afternoon.

: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
