Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Mon., Nov. 12) -- NBC remains on roll

Enjoying Mondays while it can, NBC rolled to a prime-time sweep with another two hours of The Voice followed by the freshman hit Revolution.

Both shows are leaving soon, with The Voice's two-hour fall season finale set for Dec. 18th while Revolution will be shelved for four months after two more November episodes. The eventual replacements, until late March, are The Biggest Loser (urp) and the new drama series Deception, which won't arrive until Jan. 7th.

In the heady here and now, though, The Voice drew Monday's biggest D-FW crowd (357,864 viewers) before Revolution won its 9 p.m. slot with 247,831 viewers. Both NBC attractions also ranked No. 1 from 7 to 10 p.m. among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, with Revolution even edging the 9 to 10 p.m. slice of ESPN's Monday Night Football (Steelers vs. Chiefs) in both ratings measurements.

ABC's Dancing with the Stars ran second in total viewers from 7 to 9 p.m. with 309,789 of 'em. But it mostly fell to third among 18-to-49-year-olds behind The Voice and three of CBS' four sitcoms. DWTS beat CBS' first-year Partners from 7:30 to 8 p.m.

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Dallas Mavericks' home loss to the injury-riddled, lowly Timberwolves averaged just 82,610 viewers. Monday Night Football averaged 234,063 viewers for the full game, which went into overtime.

In Monday's local news derby results, the 10 p.m. spoils were split between WFAA8 in total viewers and Fox4 among 25--to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 also swept the 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. competitions. At 6 p.m., NBC5, WFAA8 and CBS11 tied for the top spot in total viewers while WFAA8 had the gold to itself in the 25-to-54 demographic.
