[via press release from NBC]

Monday Results:

NBC swept six of six half-hours among the Big 4 networks last night in adults 18-49 and total viewers with "The Voice" and "The Blacklist," both of which ranked #1 in their time periods among the Big 4 networks in every key ratings category.

· "The Voice" (4.7 rating, 13 share in adults 18-49, 15.7 million viewers overall from 8-10:01 p.m. ET,) returned with an 18% gain versus the show's Dec. 17 fall finale in adults 18-49 (with a 4.7 rating vs. a 4.0), to score the highest "Voice" rating on any night of the week since Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 (4.7). "The Voice" is currently running within a tenth of a point of its year-ago premiere in 18-49 (4.7 vs. 4.8 on March 25, 2013).

· With 15.7 million viewers overall, this is the top "Voice" premiere in total viewers since the post-Super Bowl debut on Feb. 5, 2012. Last night's 15.734 million viewers is up 15% versus the year-go 13.636 million for the "Voice 4" premiere on March 25, 2013.

· The Voice" grew steadily through its four half-hours with this track in adults 18-49: 3.9, 4.6, 5.0, 5.2. From its first half-hour to its fourth, "The Voice" grew 33% or 1.3 rating points in 18-49 (to a 5.2 from a 3.9) and 21% or 2.9 million persons in total viewers (16.8 million vs. 13.9 million).

· From 10:01-11 p.m. ET, "The Blacklist" (3.1/9 in adults 18-49, 11.3 million viewers overall) jumped versus its prior telecast four weeks ago by 24% in 18-49 rating (to a 3.1 from a 2.5 on Jan. 27, an episode that did not have a "Voice" lead-in) and 11% in total viewers (11.278 million vs. 10.171 million).

· "The Blacklist" is currently delivering its highest 18-49 and total-viewer results since the show's fall finale on Dec. 2 (3.2). Excluding that fall-finale telecast, this matches the highest "Blacklist" in 18-49 since Sept. 30, the show's second telecast (3.3). It's also a high in total viewers, excluding that fall finale, since Sept. 30 (pending updates).

· "The Blacklist" ranked #1 in the hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and every key measure, with a current margin of 82% in adults 18-49 versus ABC's #2 "Castle" (3.1 vs. 1.7) and a margin of 158% over CBS' "Intelligence" (3.1 vs. 1.2).

· PRIOR 'BLACKLIST' SETS ALL-TIME L+7 RECORD: The Jan. 27 episode of "The Blacklist" has set an all-time U.S. television record, growing by 6.668 million viewers going from its "live plus same day" result to its "live plus seven day" audience, the biggest-ever viewer increase for any U.S. broadcast or cable program going from L+SD to L+7. That Jan. 27 "Blacklist" grew to 16.839 million viewers in "live plus seven day" figures, up from 10.171 million persons in L+SD. On a percentage basis, that's a 66% increase in audience.

· "The Blacklist" now holds the top seven increases ever going from L+SD-to-L+7 in total viewers in U.S. TV history across all broadcast and cable programming. For the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 2 in L+7, "The Blacklist" rose to the #1 drama on the Big 4 networks in 18-49 and total viewers and beat both editions of Fox's "American Idol" in both categories for the first time in L+7. Note that the Jan. 27 telecast of "The Blacklist" had also set a "live plus three day" lift in total viewers of +5.628 million .

· In adults 18-49, the Jan. 27 "The Blacklist" grew by 2.11 rating points or 83% going from L+SD to L+7 (to a 4.65 from a 2.54). That episode of "The Blacklist" derived a season-high 59% of its L+7 rating from time-shifted viewing (2.75 of its 4.65 L+7 18-49 rating).
