Ratings: ABC's Monday Night Football Eyes Possible Win, Nurses Starts Low

Ratings NFL Football

In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s share of this week’s Monday Night Football coverage averaged 5.3 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating, which stands to lead the night in the demo once all is said and done.

That’s because Fox’s special Monday installment of I Can See Your Voice is currently reporting a robust 6.8 mil and a 2.0 in fast nationals… though that is with nearly 40 minutes of the WFT/Steelers game bleeding into primetime. (More realistically, I guesstimate ICSYV winding up with around 3 mil and a 0.8; check back later for the final tale of Fox’s tape!)


NBC | The Voice (6.8 mil/0.8, read recap) was down a tick week-to-week. Nurses‘ Stateside debut drew 3.7 mil/0.4 (and a TVLine reader grade of “B-“) — down in the demo versus time slot predecessor Weakest Link‘s Monday average (3.5 mil/0.6) and more on par with what fellow Canadian transplant Transplant is averaging on Tuesdays (3.6 mil/0.5). Nurses gets one more Monday airing next week, then moves to Transplant‘s time slot starting Jan. 5.

CBS | The Neighborhood (5.2 mil/0.7) and All Rise (4.1 mil/0.4) dipped, while Bob Hearts Abishola (5.2 mil/0.6) was steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
