All eyes are on ratings this week, as new shows await their fall-season fate.

NBC easily won Monday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with new episodes of "The Voice" and "Revolution." Overall, the network earned 4.0 adults 18-49 rating, with an estimated 11 million viewers.

In second place was CBS with a 2.6 rating and 7.8 million viewers. "How I Met Your Mother" was down 11 percent from its series premiere with a 3.2 adults rating, while CBS' new sitcom "Partners" fell 13 percent, down to a 2.1 rating.

ABC scored the third prime-time ratings slot on Monday. The all-star season of "Dancing with the Stars" fell 20 percent from last week's premiere to a 2.0. Aside from series special, it marks a low for the series. Although the network was third-highest in ratings (2.0), it came in first in total viewers with 11.6 million.

Fox, meanwhile, came in fourth place, with a 1.6 rating and 5.2 million viewers in total. Its new drama, "The Mob Doctor," fell 23 percent from last week to a 1.0 rating and 3.5 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic.

Entertainment Weekly points out that "The Mob Doctor" was the lowest-rated show on a major broadcast network Monday night. Could it be headed for the chopping block? According to EW, the third episode is slated to run next week, but then "it's being pre-empted by Fox's baseball coverage."
