[via press release from NBC]

Monday Results:

NBC has won the opening night of the season in adults 18-49 with the top "Voice" since March 17 and the second-highest-rated "Blacklist" ever.

· "The Voice" (3.9/11 in 18-49, 12.7 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET) jumped by +18% versus its finale in May in 18-49 (3.9 vs. 3.3) and by +9% in total viewers (12.736 million vs. 11.685 million), despite intense competition last night from the two season-opening episodes of "Big Bang Theory," the series premiere of "Gotham" and "Dancing With the Stars." In the highly competitive time period, "The Voice" ranked #1 among adults 18-34 and all key adult-female demos (including a tie in women 25-54) in the intensely competitive slot.

· "The Voice" scored its highest 18-49 rating since March 17 (4.1) and biggest overall audience since March 24 (12.847 million).

· "The Voice" grew dramatically throughout its two hours with this half-hour track in adults 18-49: 3.3, 3.6, 4.1, 4.4

· Note that the 8-9 p.m. ET competition is up by 43% on CBS and 68% on Fox versus the same night last year, with CBS growing with "The Big Bang Theory" (5.3 vs. the year-ago 3.7 for "How I Met Your Mother") and Fox up with "Gotham" (3.2 vs. the year-ago 1.9 for "Bones"). Also note that the year-ago "Voice" debut earned a 4.9 in these preliminary fast nationals and a 5.1 in official nationals. The most recent cycle launched Feb. 24 with a 4.7 in fast nationals and official nationals.

· "The Blacklist" (3.4/10 in 18-49, 12.5 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) is the #1 drama of the night in 18-49 on a highly competitive night, capturing the show's top results since its series debut one year ago (3.8/10 in 18-49, 12.583 million viewers overall on Sept. 23, 2013), making this the #2 "Blacklist" ever in 18-49 and total viewers (L+SD). The show is expected to finish at or near record levels in L+3 and L+7.

· "The Blacklist" grew by +31% vs. its finale in May in 18-49 (3.4 vs. 2.6) and +19% in total viewers (12.453 million vs. 10.444 million).

· "The Blacklist" dominated the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key measure and beat the combined ABC-CBS result in adults 18-49 (with a 3.4 versus a combined 3.3 for CBS's "Under the Dome" [1.8] and ABC's preview of "Forever" [1.5]).
