The double night of finales for ABC pushed it over NBC to win the Monday night ratings.

Leading into IDOL was the season ender of DANCING WITH THE STARS, which was second in its 8 PM time slot.

THE VOICE was the #2 program of the night, losing to IDOL for the first time in the season. RUNNING WITH BEAR GRYLLS continues to loose half its lead in, at 10 PM.

With half its line up in encores, CBS tops FOX for third on the night. The final of MAN WITH THE PLAN, the only Monday night survivor for next season, held on to most of its BIG BANG encore lead in. ELEMENTARY ties IZOMBIE for the worst A18-34 demographic rating, with a 0.2 rating.
