Ratings: The Following Returns Steady, Gotham and The Voice Slip, Molly Rises

The Following Cancelled

Fox’s The Following on Monday night scared up 4.8 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, up a tenth from its sophomore finale and improving on Sleepy Hollow‘s most recent numbers (4.4 mil/1.4).

Versus Season 2’s Monday opener, however, The Following was down 20 percent.

Opening Fox’s night, Gotham (6.1 mil/2.0) slipped 6 and 13 percent.


ABC | The Bachelor (8.1 mil/2.4) slipped 10 percent and two tenths, but was up a tenth from its year-ago “Women Tell All” reer!-fest. A Secrets and Lies rerun at 10 pm did 4.2 mil/1.0.

CBS | Mike & Molly (9.5 mil/2.2) rose 7 percent and two tenths, and was Monday’s top-rated, most watched scripted program.

NBC | The Voice ( 14.3 mil/3.8) slipped three tenths in the demo, while The Night Shift ( 6.3 mil/1.4) added some eyeballs but ticked down in the demo from its premiere.

    CBS should have air repeats of 2 Broke Girls on a Monday night and NOT Big Bang Theory. WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?! Also, wonder if the network is thinking about a Big Bang/Broke Girls crossover episode sometime in the near future.

    • Chris says:

      Why would they do that ? One takes plae in New York and the other in la, plus there isn’t a story I could think of unless Leonard and penny have max make the cupcakes for there wedding. Also Big Bang is a very funny show while broke girls stopped being funny after the first season

    The Following was steady, maybe, but not great. Long layoff plus Voice affected it. Even with reruns CBS still does well. No surprise with ABC, Night Shift was only up because NCIS LA and Castle weren’t on

    • Tran says:

      Castle will be back in less than two weeks with a fresh episode after the new season of DWTS (I’m rooting for Nastia Liukin).
