The Voice, Angie Johnson and Cee Lo Green
The Voice is still a smash. Smash? Not so much.
The singing competition show won Monday night for NBC, with 15.7 million viewers and a 5.8 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo. It dropped a tad from last week's numbers (16.1 million, 5.9), but handily trumped all its competition over its two hours.

Smash, on the other hand, fell again, nabbing 6.5 million eyeballs and a 2.3 (down 20 and 18 percent, respectively). Hawaii Five-0 overtook the musical drama in both measures for the first time, rising slightly to win the 10 o'clock hour with 10.2 million and a 2.8. CBS enjoyed a good night overall, as its comedy block — all of which saw season lows last week — rose this week.
Fellow midseason newbie Alcatraz continue to drop as well, hitting series lows of 5.96 million and a 1.8.
