NBC Monday ratings


Monday Results (ABC carried NFL football in Kansas City):

* From 8-10 p.m. ET, “The Sing-Off” averaged a 1.4 rating, 4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.4 million viewers overall in a highly competitive time period that included CBS’s “Two and a Half Men,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Two Broke Girls” and “Mike & Molly,” ABC’s “Scared Shrekless” and “Dancing With the Stars” and Fox’s “Terra Nova” and “House.”  Note that on average this season, “The Sing-Off” has been adding 19 percent to its next-day “live plus same day” 18-49 rating when Nielsen reports additional time-shifted viewing in “live plus seven day” ratings.

* Pending updates, this is the top “Sing-Off” in total viewers in four weeks (since October 3).  Despite last night’s Halloween distractions, “Sing-Off” is up week to week in total viewers by 5 percent (4.385 million vs. 4.175 million). 
* At 10 p.m. ET, the premiere of “Rock Center” averaged a 1.0/3 in 18-49 and 4.1 million viewers overall.  On a night of Halloween distractions and in a time period that included competition from CBS’s “Hawaii Five-0,” ABC’s “Castle” and ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” “Rock Center” delivered the biggest overall audience in this slot for NBC since September 19.
