Football and "The Voice" Give NBC a Ratings Boost

Oct 2 2013, 4:36am CDT | by ABC News Radio

Mark Seliger/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Strong audience numbers for The Voice, Sunday Night Football and the new James Spader drama, The Blacklist, helped NBC finish in second place in last week’s network ratings race.

The network averaged 9.7 million, a 19 percent increase over last year.  CBS won the ratings race, averaging 10.3 million viewers, followed by NBC,  ABC, Fox and Univision.

NBC’s broadcast of the NFL matchup between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons attracted more than 20 million viewers and was the most-watched show in primetime last week.  The Blacklist, which features Spader as a fugitive who works for the FBI, averaged 12.5 million viewers in its debut.

The Hollywood Reporter says NBC won this past Monday’s primetime battle.  It’s lineup of The Voice and The Blacklist averaged 13.5 million viewers for the night, compared to ABC’s combination of Dancing with the Stars and Castle, which averaged 12.2 million.  CBS’ Monday night lineup of How I Met Your Mother, the new comedy We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls, Mom and Hostages, averaged 6.8 million viewers.

Here’s a rundown of the top ten primetime shows for the week of Sept. 23-29, according to The Nielsen Company:

1. NFL Football: New England at Atlanta, NBC, 20.49 million.
2. The Big Bang Theory (Thursday), CBS, 20.44 million.
3. NCIS, CBS, 20.02 million.
4. The Big Bang Theory, CBS, 18.99 million.
5. NCIS: Los Angeles, CBS, 16.35 million.
6. The Crazy Ones, CBS, 15.52 million.
7. Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kick, NBC, 15.26 million.
