The CW had a special called IHeartRadio Music Festival.
On NBC, it was another big night. The Voice won in both the 18-49 demographic and total viewership categories with a 4.5 rating and 12.32 million. It was up 2% over last week’s demo.
That was followed at 10pm with Revolution. The third episode registered a 3.2 rating with 8.40 million, down 6% from last week’s. This was the timeslot winner in the demo but was second in total viewers, behind Castle on ABC.
On CBS, all of the comedies were down when compared to last week but Hawaii Five-0 was up. How I Met Your Mother dropped 11% to a 3.2 rating with 8.15 million.
The second episode of Partners dropped 13% to a 2.1 demo rating and 5.71 million viewers. The show was in trouble last week and now it looks like it’s fate is sealed.
The night finished with Hawaii Five-0. Last week’s episode was a series low for the series and things got better this week — but just barely. The cop series attracted a 1.9 in the demo with 7.72 million viewers. It tied Castle in the demo and was in third place in viewership.
On FOX, there wasn’t any good news. Bones fell 9% when compared to last week’s demo, hitting a 2.1 in the demo and 6.90 million. That was followed by waiting-to-be-cancelled Mob Doctor at 9pm. The newbie series hit a 1.0 in the demo and 3.54 million, down by a whopping 24% week-to-week.
And finally, on The CW, we had the IHeartRadio Music Festival special. It drew a 0.7 demo rating with 1.72 million viewers and was in last place for both of the special’s two hours.
