NBC opened the week on a winning overnight note, with a 15 percent advantage over second-place CBS. And that advantage will be greater among adults 18-49. Keep in mind that Dancing With the Stars did not air on ABC last night (hence the overnight victory for NBC). In the distant No. 3 spot was ABC, followed by Fox and The CW.
Two-hours of rock-solid The Voice on NBC scored a dominant 7.8 rating/12 share from 8-10 p.m., which rose to its best overnight performance since Oct. 29. Comparably, The Voice built from year-ago occupant The Holiday Sing-Off (2.7/ 4 on 12/05/11) by a massive 189 percent. At 10 p.m. on NBC was holiday special Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas at a third-place 5.4/ 9, which was also the network’s top overnight rating in the time period since Oct. 29. Retention for Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Voice (7.7) was acceptable at 70 percent.
CBS was on the Monday map courtesy of its combination of How I Met Your Mother (#2: 5.9/ 9), a repeat of 2 Broke Girls (#3: 4.6/ 7), an original installment of 2 Broke Girls (#2: 6.8/10), Mike & Molly (#2: 6.4/10) and Hawaii Five-O (#1: 6.3/10), which featured a promotional tie-in to annual special Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (which airs tonight). But year-to-year, the network was down by 23 percent, and there is still no official announcement what will be stepping in for canceled Partners at 8:30 p.m. Calling benchwarmer Rules of Engagement!
Over at ABC, two more special editions of tired Extreme Makeover: Home Edition filled in for Dancing With the Stars with a fourth-place 3.4/ 6 from 8-9 p.m. and a third-place 3.3/ 5 from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, this was down by a considerable 74 percent from the 12.7/18 for Dancing With the Stars one week earlier. But Castle on the alphabet net is now officially able to stand on its own, with a second-place 5.9/10 in the overnights at 10 p.m. (and growth out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – 3.4/ 5) of 74 percent.
Elsewhere, episode No. 150 of Fox forensics crime solver Bones finished third in the 8 p.m. hour with a respectable 4.9/ 8 in the overnights. But soon-to-depart The Mob Doctor has earned its pending cancellation stripes with a fourth-place 2.5/ 4 at 9 p.m. As a reminder, upcoming drama The Following with Kevin Bacon will inherit the Monday 9 p.m. hour on Fox on January 21.
Last, of course, was The CW care of episode No. 100 of 90210 (#5: 1.0/ 2), which never should have made it past one season, and soon-to-conclude Gossip Girl (0.8/ 1). Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries will move into the Monday 8 p.m. hour on January 14, leading into relocated 90210. The built-in advantage for The Carrie Diaries, of course, is the low benchmark of comparison.
