Publish date:

As most East Coast stations aired coverage of Hurricane Sandy Monday night, CBS and The CW scrapped their regular lineups in favor of repeats. Fox, which had Game 5 of the World Series scheduled, which was not needed, aired an encore of The X Factor.

NBC, as one of two networks to air its original lineup, won with an overall 4.4 rating/11 share with adults 18-49, according to Nielsen overnight numbers. The Voice was up 16% to a 5.0 and Revolution followed with a 3.1, down 6% from two weeks ago.

ABC was the only other network to air its regular lineup, finishing with a 2.7/6. Dancing With the Stars was up 13% from last week to a 2.7 and Castle was up 35% from two weeks ago to a 2.7 as well.

Please Note: Due to Hurricane Sandy, fast affiliate ratings for Monday include more pre-emptions than usual and are likely impacted by power outages. It is unknown when Final National numbers will be released.
