And NBC’s The Voice is now LIVE — hey, where are you going?!

The singing competition hit had its first live show of the season Monday night, but the ratings were down a bit from last week. The Voice returned to 11.6 million viewers and a 3.6 rating among adults 18-49, off 16 percent and making its lowest-rated Monday this season. Still, Voice won the night. At 10 p.m., NBC’s The Blacklist slipped below a 3.0 rating, presumably thanks to its lead-in softening.

Also debuting Monday: CBS’ Mike & Molly returned to the air lower. The sitcom was down 16 percent from last fall’s premiere in its 9 p.m. time period. Mike & Molly also didn’t help Mom at 9:30 p.m., with Chuck Lorre’s freshman comedy down a tenth this week. HIMYM had some good news, up 13 percent to its best rating since its season premiere. But 10 p.m.’s Hostages slipped a tenth to a new low.

Fox’s Sleepy Hollow was back after all that pesky interfering baseball, with Fringe‘s John Noble now along for the ride. Looks like ratings dipped 7 percent from Sleepy‘s last episode three weeks ago, which isn’t bad at all.

On ABC, a visit by Cher drew some more viewers to Dancing with the Stars, but they weren’t young ones —  the 18-49 rating was steady. Full chart:
