Two and a Half Men had a 3.7 rating and was the #1 on Monday. The Voice had a 3.5 rating, tied for second place with 2 Broke Girls. Dancing with the Stars had a 2.8 rating and 16.67 total viewers.
The Voice was down 8% from last week and DWTS was down 16% — both scoring series lows for performance shows. Not good news for the shows we follow. Who knew Mondays of all days would be this competitive!

Got Something to Add?
The Voice has dwindled in viewers since the start...each week has been worse...I think I see a pattern here!
@rickey 2.5 Men -- >3.8 and 2 Broke Girls --->3.6 were both adjusted up leaving The Voice Languishing in 3rd Place with 3.5. Is it a bad thing that I am happy with this news ?
I love the judges and the banter, but I hate The Voice's format for live shows. It allows great singers to get knocked out early.
Hopefully X-Factor will be more stable this year and show that it's format is good for protecting great singers.
Once the coaches let James & Pip go, they lost the 'tween' viewers & younger viewers who were the super fans ..... I agree, that these two performers weren't the best, however, it may have been a better strategey to keep them longer for ratings purposes if that be their main concern...... JMO
