[TV] Ratings: Bones' Big Wedding Brings In Better Ratings
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.22.2013
The Voice falls but still leads the night...
The marriage of Booth and Brennan on Bones last night helped the ratings go up compared to previous weeks. While The Voice fell last night, it was still easily the top show in the demographic. The Blacklist also fell, falling behind Castle in viewers (but not in the demographic) for the first time this season. CBS and The CW are up, as affiliates in Minneapolis and New York carried Monday Night Football, so their numbers will likely come down some.
NBC won with 12.45 million viewers and a 7.6 rating/12 share in households, followed by ABC (12.3 million, 8.0/12), CBS (7.3 million, 4.6/7), FOX (5.4 million, 3.3/5) and The CW (1.55 million, 1.1/2). In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC won again with a 3.8 rating, followed by CBS (2.2), ABC (1.6), FOX (1.6) and The CW (0.6).
