The Monday TV ratings for October 19th are in; here are some of the highlights:

  • As has more or less been the law on Monday nights since the sitcom first started airing on that particular week night, The Big Bang Theory dominated the entire night in the 8 p.m. slot, taking 3.7 in the key demos (down a tenth from last week) with 14.3 million viewers on CBS.
  • Beyond that, it was NBC’s night first and foremost, with The Voice taking in 3.1 in the demos in the 8 p.m. slot, pulling in some 11.1 million viewers. In the 10 p.m. slot, Blindspot was down to its lowest numbers but still took an admirable 2.1 in the demos with 7.8 million viewers.
