Charlie and Miles suffered another setback Monday night: The Revolution heroes were beaten in the ratings by smooth-talking serial killer Joe Carroll for the first time.

The penultimate episode of Fox’s first season of The Following rose to its best rating in weeks, with 7 million viewers and a 2.4 among adults 18-49, up 14 percent. That was enough to suppress NBC’s Revolution, which was steady this week with 6.2 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. The disparity between the shows is probably greater than these numbers suggest, since The Following merely had a Bones lead-in (1.9) while Revolution has The Voice (4.8). Revolution and The Following have tied twice in the demo, but this is the first time The Following has had a higher number outright.

Speaking of which, The Voice dipped 8 percent for its third Battle Rounds episode, yet still easily led the night. Over on ABC, Dancing was down 5 percent to tie its lowest rating ever for a performance show, while Castle was up 10 percent.
