Opening ABC’s Monday lineup, The Bachelor (4.6 mil/1.1) slipped 10 percent from its season opener but still easily led the night in both measures (with CBS in rerun mode); read our recap of Matt James’ latest highs and lows.
Elsewhere, opposite what we can presume was a decently watched college football championship on ESPN….
NBC | Ellen’s Game of Games (3.1 mil/0.5) was down, a real roller coaster edition of The Wall (2.7 mil/0.5) was steady, and an extra-snarky Weakest Link returned to 2.4 mil/0.5.
THE CW | Part 1 of the All American Stories special drew 376K and a 0.1.
NEXT MONDAY, 9-1-1, 9-1-1: Lone Star and All American arrive with new seasons!
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. Kids, ask parents before calling.
