NBC’s “The Voice” continued its streak as Monday’s #1 show in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

Obviously, that means it also defeated ABC’s “American Idol” in the 8-10PM timeslot.

Its margin of victory, however, shrank this week.

According to fast national data shared by NBC, Monday’s “Voice” drew a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 10.37 million overall viewers.

“Idol” drew a 1.6 rating and 7.78 million.

Last week’s “The Voice” won by a wider margin, drawing a 2.3 rating and 10.83 million viewers against the 1.6 rating and 7.68 million viewer mark.

— Monday’s NBC lineup also included “Good Girls” at 10PM (1.0, 4.3 million). ABC aired “The Good Doctor” in that hour; it drew a 1.6 rating and 9.39 million viewers.
