“The Voice” absolutely killed it in the ratings and viewership for Monday night as the live rounds continue this week.

According to Deadline, the singing competition faced tough challenges last week when it tied with “Dancing with the Stars” and “9-1-1” for ratings. But this week, the other shows dipped just enough for “The Voice” to get back on top. And just in time too, with some of the most spectacular performances of the season so far airing.

The NBC show managed to snag a 0.8 demo rating, up from 0.7 last week. On the other hand, “Dancing with the Stars” dipped from 0.7 to 0.6, with “9-1-1” dropping even lower to 0.5. It’s not good news for “DWTS,” which heads into the Season 30 finale next week.

In terms of viewership, “The Voice” skyrocketed from 5.9 million viewers last week to 6.4 million this week. It boasted over a million more viewers than either “9-1-1” or “DWTS,” which came in with 4.91 and 4.57 million respectively.

Normally, the three shows would lose out on viewership to “NCIS” on CBS. But “NCIS” and “NCIS: Hawai’i” have taken a hiatus this month and won’t return until Nov. 29. CBS is airing reruns of both shows in the meantime.

The network did have mild success last night with its show “The Neighborhood,” though. The show ended up receiving a 0.5 demo rating and 3.91 million viewers, the highest numbers it ever recorded.

Two Artists Go Home Tonight on ‘The Voice’

Tonight, the Top 13 return to “The Voice” stage for another live performance. We’ve seen some absolutely phenomenal talent from the contestants so far this season, which only makes elimination nights that much harder.

Voting opened last night for the Top 13 and closed this morning at 7 a.m. EST. Fans should have another chance to vote for their favorites tonight until the show narrows the competition down to the Top 11.

As a refresher, here are the contestants still in the running for each team.

Team Blake boasts powerhouses Wendy Moten, Paris Winningham, and Lana Scott. A refreshing mix of styles from the country star. On Team Kelly, you’ll find Jeremy Rosado, Girl Named Tom, Hailey Mia, and Gymani. Clarkson even cried during Rosado’s performance of a Celine Dion song last night.

For Team Ariana, we have Ryleigh Plank, Jim and Sasha Allen, and Holly Forbes. Fierce competitors for a fierce coach. And last but certainly not least, we have Team Legend: Shadale, Jershika Maple, and Joshua Vacanti make up the ranks of this game-changing team.

Make sure you tune in to “The Voice” tonight at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. And don’t forget to cast your votes for your favorite contestants before the double-elimination tonight.
