NBC once again coasted to an effortless victory Monday night, as The Voice-Blacklist battery thumped the broadcast competition. According to Nielsen fast national data, the season’s fifth installment of The Voice delivered 14.3 million viewers and a 4.5 in the adults 18-49 demo, slipping two-tenths of a ratings point versus last week’s broadcast. At 10 p.m., The Blacklist continued its winning ways, scaring up 11.3 million total viewers and a 3.2 in the demo, down a hair from the 3.3 it delivered a week ago. This marks the third consecutive Monday night sweep for NBC, which dominated the field with an average draw of 13.3 million viewers and a 4.1 rating. The Peacock took every significant demographic, including adults 25-54 (5.1), women 18-49 (5.0) and men 18-49 (3.1). As NBC took another victory lap, things were decidedly less celebratory at CBS. The network finished last among the Big Four in the 18-49 demo (1.9) and among adults 25-54 (2.4), as its Monday night comedy block and new serialized drama Hostages demonstrated further erosion. Leading off the night at 8 p.m., the outgoing comedy How I Met Your Mother slipped 6 percent to a 2.9 rating, while freshman lead-out We Are Men fell another 10 percent to a shaky 1.8. By way of comparison, the year-ago time slot occupant, Partners, lasted six weeks before it dropped south of a 2.0 rating, whereupon CBS pulled the plug . Look for Mike & Molly to fill the 8:30 p.m
