Okay, Revolution, you can stop slipping in the ratings now.

You’ve had your typical new drama series post-premiere ratings slide, and then had your post-post premiere slippage, and now we’re ready for you to knock it off and be the steady hit you’re supposed to be. Revolution was down 7 percent to its lowest adult demo rating to date, but still won 10 p.m. Monday night. The NBC drama delivered 7.1 million viewers and a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. Here’s its trend in the demo each week since its premiere: 4.1, 3.4, 3.2, 3.0, 3.3 — that last number was seemingly a good sign for the show, suggesting stabilization. But then we got a 2.8 last week and now 2.6.

To some extent, Revolution‘s numbers are tied to the trend of its powerful lead-in The Voice (11.5 million, 4.3). But the musical competition was only down 4 percent this week and no matter how you look at it the reality show gives Revolution a big push. Also, check out last night’s story on how J.J. Abrams pitched Revolution to NBC.

Revolution‘s 10 p.m. rivals were steady (in the case of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0) and improved 11 percent (in the case of ABC’s Castle). CBS’ comedy block was more-or-less steady, with the exception of new comedy Partners (5.6 million, 1.8), which was down 14 percent to a new low. ABC’s numbers are disrupted by some live football preemptions so they’re not really accurate this morning. Over on The CW, 90210 (1.2 million, 0.6) had its most-watched episode of the season.
