The Voice came, saw and conquered.
Despite the influx of premieres, the reality show, airing its first fall season, dominated Monday night with 11.9 million viewers and a 4.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, dropping 10 percent from last week. Combined with Revolution (9.5 million, 3.5), NBC won the night in the coveted demo.
Revolution fell about 15 percent, but put up a strong showing against Castle (11.4 million, 2.4) and Hawaii Five-0 (8 million, 1.9), which slumped 44 percent to a series low in the demo.
Vote: Which fall premieres won you over? Which flopped?
ABC topped the night in viewership, thanks to Dancing with the Stars' two-hour All-Stars premiere (14.6 million, 2.7). However, the show was down 32 percent from last fall's premiere.
Also down was CBS' comedy lineup, which was buoyed last year by Ashton Kutcher's debut on Two and a Half Men. The series premiere of Partners drew a soft 6.5 million viewers and a 2.4.
On Fox, Bones (7.3 million, 2.2) was down a tenth, while The Mob Doctor (4 million, 1.3) dropped two-tenths.
