The Peacock earned yet another Monday night victory, thanks to music-themed programs The Voice and the Adele Live in New York City special. Both shows earned impressive ratings. Here's a look at last night's ratings for the Big 4 and The CW.

NBC – Last night was the 20th-consecutive Monday that NBC has ranked #1 or tied for #1 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49.

The Voice won the night by averaging a 3.2 in adults 18-49 and almost 14 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m.
• The adults 18-49 average is up 19% from the final competition episode of the prior cycle (3.2 vs. 2.6 on May 18) and up 24% in total viewers (13.9 million vs. 11.3 million).
• Last night's episode delivered the series' most-watched final Monday telecast ever.
