'The Voice' Ratings: NBC Wins Night, Rebounds In Key Demos

"The Voice" returned with strong ratings, boosting NBC to a win.

Preliminary "Voice" ratings have the series pulling in a 4.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic from 8-10:01 p.m. ET and 13.4 million viewers overall. The rating is up from the Season 3 premiere which had a 4.2 rating in September. However, the ratings were down compared to the Season 3 finale which had 14 million viewers and a 4.9 rating in December.

In the premiere, new coaches Shakira and Usher joined Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in the spinning red chairs for the blind auditions. "The Voice" was the No.1 show of the night across the networks.

"Revolution" returned with a new episode for the first time in four months, bringing in 7.2 million viewers and a 2.7 rating. The November finale of "Revolution" had a 2.9 ratings and 8.6 million viewers (not factoring in DVR viewership).

The solid return of "The Voice" and one of the season's success stories, "Revolution," is good news for the struggling Peacock network. During February sweeps, the network fell behind Spanish-language Univision in the 18-49 demo. The network previously reigned supreme in November, but when "The Voice" disappeared in December, so did NBC's ratings.

Time will tell if NBC retains this ratings momentum and if it will help the rest of the struggling lineup.

Watch "The Voice" on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC and "Revolution" on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.
