Monday TV Ratings: GOTHAM Remains Low, While SCORPION Gets Finale Bump

     April 21, 2015


The Monday TV ratings for April 20th are in; here are some of the highlights:

  • Though The Voice was down 4 tenths from last week to a 2.5 rating and 10.3 million viewers at 8 p.m., those numbers helped NBC win the night among viewers in the key 18-49 demographic.
  • And like every week since the two have been doing the ratings dance, Dancing with the Stars comes in second with the ratings, but pulls a bigger audience (this week, a 2.0 and 13.07 million viewers), helping ABC win the night overall with viewers.
  • Gotham tied its series low on Fox with a 1.5 rating and 4.3 million viewers, also at 8 p.m.

    The Originals bumped up a tenth in that time slot though, up slightly from last week’s series low to a 0.5 rating and 1.28 million viewers.

  • At 9 p.m., CBS’s Scorpion won the hour with a 2.1 rating and 10.42 million viewers, up two tenths from last week, probably thanks to its finale bump. Still, the show has been strong all season with ratings and viewers.
  • The Following on Fox was also up a notch to a 1.2 rating and 3.35 million viewers.
  • On the CW, Jane the Virgin stayed even with last week, bringing in a 0.4 rating and 1.07 million viewers.
  • ABC’s Castle and CBS’s NCIS: LA pulled almost identical numbers, with Castle (though down a tenth) winning with a 1.4 rating and 8.4 million viewers. NCIS: LA was down to a series low 1.4 and 8.69 million viewers (no, I don’t know how ratings work sometimes, either).
  • On NBC, The Night Shift stayed steady — as it tends to do — with a 1.3 rating and 5.53 million viewers.
