Monday TV Show Ratings: Revolution, Mob Doctor, Bones, The Voice, LA Complex

Mob Doctor and Revolution premiere ratingsMonday, September 17, 2012 ratings: There were two series premieres last night — The Mob Doctor on FOX and Revolution on NBC. Though CBS had all reruns, the other networks had all original programming including The Voice, the season premiere of Bones, two episodes of The LA Complex, and the CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock on ABC. It’s starting to feel like the 2012-13 season has begun.

On NBC, the two-hour edition of The Voice drew a 4.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 13.36 million total viewers. That represents a 10% jump in the prized demo when compared to the first week’s final rating.

That was followed by the series premiere of Revolution at 10pm. It drew a very healthy 4.1 demo rating with 11.65 million viewers and lost just 11% of it’s big lead-in.

On FOX, the eighth season premiere of Bones drew a 2.3 rating with 7.82 million viewers. Compared to the season seven premiere, the venerable crime drama was down by 30% in the demo and 22% in total viewers.

The series premiere of The Mob Doctor followed Bones with a disappointing 1.5 rating and 5.09 million. It was in fourth place and doesn’t bode well for the future.

On ABC, the special CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock drew a 1.7 in the demo with 6.22 million viewers.

On CBS, it was three hours of reruns — a pair of How I Met Your Mother episodes (1.4 in the demo with 4.29 million), a duo of 2 Broke Girls installments (1.6 rating and 4.91 million) and Hawaii Five-0 (0.9 demo rating with 4.39 million).

And finally, on The CW, we had back-to-back episodes of The LA Complex. The 8pm installment drew a 0.4 demo rating with 0.81 million. If the numbers are the same in the finals, those will represent series highs. The 9pm episode fell to a 0.2 demo rating with 0.54 million.

    Of the premieres Monday, I think Bones definitely was on top. This despite it being the weakest season premiere the series has had. Mob Doctor, I think, will be cancelled before Halloween; the simple reason being the overly complex plot. Revolution, I believe, will be good for a season or two at least. I think Revolution has a chance because J.J. Abram’s name recognition among the public. That said, if it becomes like Lost where individual plots take multiple episodes to play out, it won’t keep viewer’s attention.

    I thought Revolution was very promising… but that’s a terrible time-slot. It needs to be a launch for prime-time, not a finisher.
