Ratings Update: NBC’s “Blindspot” Falls By 16% This Week, Still Wins Timeslot in A18-49

Final Ratings Update: Despite suffering a 16% decline in adults 18-49, Monday’s “Blindspot” remained its timeslot’s top-rated broadcast network program.

It did, however, cede its viewership throne to CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles.”

Monday’s “Blindspot” drew a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating with 7.817 million total viewers. Both numbers trail those of last week’s episode, which drew a 2.5 with 8.447 million.

While down, the 2.1 rating still topped the 1.3 and 1.1 respectively posted by timeslot rivals “NCIS: LA” and “Castle.” CBS’ “NCIS” spin-off, however, drew a stronger viewership total of 8.767 million (“Castle” was third with 6.670 million).

NBC led into “Blindspot” with “The Voice.” Down from last week’s 3.3 with 11.960 million total viewers, it drew a 3.0 with 11.400 million.

Monday’s edition of “Blindspot,” which was the fifth episode to date, suffered losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Per fast national data, the episode drew a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating with 7.826 million total viewers. It ranks as the lowest-rated and least-watched of the five broadcasts.

Last week’s “Blindspot” drew a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating with 8.447 million viewers.

Worth noting: “Blindspot” has been receiving a significant boost from time-shifting and has already received a full season order.

— Lead-in “The Voice” also suffered losses this week. Monday’s episode drew a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating with 10.772 million viewers in the 8PM hour and a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating with 11.522 million at 9PM.

Last week’s episode averaged a 3.3 with 11.960 million from 8-10PM.
