For the night, NBC is up 122 percent vs. last year's opening night (with a 4.0 rating vs. a 1.8)

· From 8-10:01 p.m. ET, "The Voice" (4.2 rating, 11 share in adults 18-49, 11.9 million viewers overall) delivered the #1 results of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49 and other key demos, winning the time period head to head versus the season premiere of CBS's Monday comedies, ABC's season premier of "Dancing With the Stars" and week two of Fox's "Bones" and "The Mob Doctor." "The Voice" topped #2 CBS by a margin of 35 percent in 18-49 rating (4.2 vs. 3.1) and out-rated "Dancing With the Stars" by 56 percent (4.2 vs. 2.7).

· Despite the arrival of season-premiere competition on ABC and CBS, "The Voice" is running within 11 percent of last week's 4.7 in 18-49 and within 9 percent of the 4.6 reported in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings.

· "The Voice" delivered growth throughout its time period, generating this track in 18-49 rating: 3.4, 4.1, 4.7, 4.8, for a gain of 1.4 rating points or 41 percent from the show's first half-hour to its fourth. In total viewers, the increase is 27 percent or nearly 2.8 million persons (12.9 million vs. 10.2 million).

· "The Voice" is up 40 percent versus NBC's 18-49 average in the time period last season (4.2 vs. 3.0) and up 37 percent in total viewers (11,926 million vs. 8.682 million).

· From 10:01-11 p.m. ET, "Revolution" (3.5/9 in adults 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall) ranked #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and all other key demographics. "Revolution" retained 85 percent of last week's powerful premiere rating despite the arrival of competition this week from CBS's "Hawaii Five-0" and ABC's "Castle." "Revolution's" 18-49 margin of victory in the hour is 40 percent vs. "Castle" (3.5 vs. 2.5) and 84 percent vs. "Hawaii Five-0" (3.5 vs. 1.9).

· Note that "Revolution" has started out as a highly time-shifted show, last week adding 1.36 rating points to its L+SD 4.09 in "live plus three day" results (5.45). It's the biggest increase ever from L+SD to L+3 for NBC and biggest ever for a series debut on any network.

· The only series on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox to ever gain 1.36 rating points or more going from "live plus same day" to "live plus three day" have been "Modern Family," "Grey's Anatomy," "The New Girl," "Big Bang Theory," the post-Super Bowl telecast of "Glee" and the first appearance by Ashton Kutcher on "Two and a Half Men."

· "Revolution" has now reached a total of 24.2 million viewers who've watched all or part of last week's premiere or the Wednesday encore.
