NBC’s The Voice opened Season 8 with 13.6 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, ticking up in audience while off just a tenth from its fall premiere, and up 5 and 22 percent from that cycle’s finale.
Compared to its year-ago spring opener, though, The Voice slipped 15 percent, and hit a series low for a premiere.
Leading out of that, The Night Shift’s Season 2 premiere drew 5.5 mil and a 1.5, down in audience yet improving in the demo versus its Season 1 finale (6.1 mil/1.1), which aired in July following America’s Got Talent.
ABC | The Bachelor (8.9 mil/2.6) was flat; Castle (7.7 mil/1.7) dipped 9 percent in audience but ticked up a tenth in the demo.
FOX | Gotham (6.5 mil/2.2) rose a tenth, while Sleepy Hollow’s Season 2 finale (4.4 mil/1.4) was steady.
