Two weeks into the new season, NBC continued its Monday-night dominance as The Voice stabilized and Manifest held up best among the freshman series.
The Voice delivered 10.1 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating (per finals), up 4 percent and a tenth week-to-week. Manifest (8.5 mil/1.8) slipped 18 percent from its strong launch, yet still dominated its time slot.
Over on CBS, Magnum P.I. (6.2 mil/0.9) in Week 2 dropped 23 and 33 percent with weaker sitcom lead-ins. Opening the Eye’s night, The Neighborhood debuted to 8.1 mil/1.3, down sharply from Big Bang‘s week-ago 12.9 mil/2.5 while improving on Kevin Can Wait‘s year-ago numbers (6.3 mil/1.2). Similarly, Happy Together (5.9 mil/1.0) fell well shy of Young Sheldon‘s placeholder numbers (10.6 mil/1.7) but was up from 9JKL‘s comparable outing. At 10 pm, Bull (6.7 mil/0.8) dipped 8 percent and a tenth.
TVLine readers gave both The Neighborhood and Happy Together average grades of “C+”; 61 percent will keep watching the former, 68 percent the latter.
ABC | Dancing With the Stars (7.1 mil/0.8) and The Good Doctor (7.2 mil/1.1) are both down two tenths week-to-week.
FOX | The Resident (4.8 mil/1.0) and 9-1-1 (6.1 mil/1.5) each dipped a tenth.
THE CW | Penn & Teller (1.2 mil/0.3) was up, Whose Line (720K/0.2) steady.
