On Monday night, NBC had The Voice just in the 8pm hour and it was up 1.2 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. That bodes well for the finale next week. At 9pm, the return of The Sing Off delivered positive numbers for NBC. It did drop off a lot over two hours but it was still a solid performance and well above the numbers it was getting during its poorly-rated fall run in 2011. This show belongs as a holiday special and it seems like it will be a decent December performer though we'll see what it can do without The Voice. On FOX, Almost Human was actually up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. For one week at least, it has defied the downward trend which makes me less inclined to continue to call for Bones to come back to the slot. That being said, the smarter thing would have been to leave Bones here and let Almost Human take Glee's slot. At 9pm, Sleepy Hollow was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

On ABC, the series premiere of holiday reality show The Great Christmas Light Fight delivered numbers that did not make it a flat out flop but also not encouraging enough to think it will be a new holiday tradition for ABC. We'll see how the next couple episodes do. CBS only had new episodes of Mike & Molly and Hostages amidst repeats. Mike & Molly was down nine tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. While it was a season low, it was not a horrible performance considering it was airing after repeats. Hostages was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.
