[TV] Ratings: The Voice Returns To Decent Numbers

The Blacklist and The Bachelor are both up...
The Winter Olympics may be over, but NBC still got another win last night with the season six premiere of The Voice, which fell some in the demographic from the fall but was even with last spring's premiere. It also had the best total viewer episodes since 2012 after the Super Bowl. The show naturally gave The Blacklist a better rating, its best since the mid-season finale in December. Meanwhile, the other networks returned with their usual shows. How I Met Your Mother and The Bachelor were up. The CW's Star-Crossed kept most of its debut audience while both Almost Human and The Following were even with last week.
NBC won with 14.25 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/13 share in households. It was followed by ABC (8.3 million, 5.5/9), CBS (7.2 million, 4.6/7), FOX (5.1 million, 3.2/5) and The CW (844,000, 0.6/1). In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC won again with a 4.2 rating, followed by ABC (2.2), CBS (2.1), FOX (1.6) and The CW (0.3). Here is the Monday hour by hour:
