[TV] Ratings: The Voice Does Well, Gossip Girl Bombs

ABC wins the night...
Although The Voice's ratings usually fall a little after the audition rounds, last night's episode had the best demographic rating since March and led to NBC winning in that category. Meanwhile, CBS had some increase in ratings, which could be adjusted later as the networks' Houston affiliate carried Monday Night Football. Without football, it will likely be even with last week. The CW's night was bad, as neither 90210 nor Gossip Girl even hit a million viewers. The Mob Doctor also lost viewers for FOX.
With Dancing With The Stars and Castle, ABC managed to win the night with 12.4 million viewers and an 8.2 rating/12 share in households in primetime. It was followed by NBC (11.1 million, 6.5/10), CBS (8.7 million, 5.3/8), FOX (5.3 million, 3.2/5) and The CW (883,000, 0.6/1).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC won with a 4.2, followed by CBS (2.8), ABC (2.2), FOX (1.4) and The CW (0.4).
