Smash continues to lose ratings

NBCNBC‘s new musical drama Smash continued to lose ratings on Monday evening as it dropped to under 7 million viewers while The Voice continued to perform strongly.

At 8pm The Voice on NBC pulled in 14.5 million viewers with a 5.3 rating winning the hour in both categories; total viewers and those aged between 18-49. CBS comedies How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls (at 8.30) fell behind with 9.81 million with a 3.8 rating and 11.2 million viewers and a 4.0 rating respectively. The Bachelor on ABC was seen by 8.1 million viewers scoring a 2.4 rating while medical drama House on Fox was seen by 6.9 million viewers and had a 2.3 rating. Teen drama Gossip Girl continued its low ratings streak withy 1 million viewers and a 0.5 18-49 rating.

At 9pm The Voice‘s ratings rose to 16.8 million viewers with a6.3 18-49 rating; once again winning the hour in both categories and pushing CBS back. Two and a Half Men attracted 13.2 million viewers with a 4.1 18-49 rating while Mike and Molly had 11.2 million viewers and a 3.4 18-49 rating. The Bachelor on ABC continued in the 9pm hour holding steady in terms of total viewers and rising to a slightly higher 2.5 rating. Fox drama Alcatraz lost even more viewers slipping to 5.9 million viewers and a 1.8 rating – giving hope to Terra Nova fans of a renewal for the dino-drama (in all honesty if Fox doesn’t renew Terra Nova within days it won’t be renewing it at all). The 9pm hour was rounded off by Hart of Dixie on The CW with 1.4 million viewers overall scoring a 0.6 rating.

At 10pm Smash dropped further down the ratings charts for NBC slipping to 6.4 million viewers – compared with 8 million last week – and a 2.3 rating. It all started so well for the drama starring Debra Messing and Jack Davenport but if ratings continue to slide the future doesn’t look bright for Smash. Also at 10pm Hawaii Five-0 had 10.2 million viewers with a 2.8 rating and Castle on ABC had 9.6 million viewers with a 2.1 rating.
