CBS’ Monday drama lineup rang in the new year with significant across-the-board gains.
Opening the Eye’s night, Supergirl returned to 8.8 million total viewers and a 1.8 demo rating, up 20 percent from its last fresh outing to hit and match its best numbers since Week 2.
A “chilling” Scorpion then did 11.5 mil and a 2.1, drawing its biggest audience since Feb. 9 and a best-since-premiere rating. Come 10 pm, a highly entertaining episode of NCIS: LA put up 10.5 mil/1.6, its best numbers since March 9.
Elsewhere in the ratings….
NBC | Superstore (6 mil/1.7) and Telenovela (4.5 mil/1.3) somewhat improbably more than doubled their most recent fresh episodes, while the rejiggered The Biggest Loser (3.8 mil/1.2) shed 30 and 25 percent from its previous premiere.
ABC | The Bachelor opened its new season with 7.5 mil and a 2.2, matching its previous premiere and edging out Scorpion for the nightly demo win. The aftershow did 4.1 mil/1.1, matching Castle‘s most recent rating though down a good 35 percent in total audience.
FOX | Superhuman averaged 3.6 mil and a 1.2 across its two-hour run.
