In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s share of Monday Night Football coverage dominated the night with 9.6 million total viewers and a 2.6 demo rating. (Dancing With the Stars who?)
Among Monday’s non-NFL fare, NBC’s The Voice season premiere (6.2 mil/0.7, TVLine reader grade “B”) led the night in total audience and tied for the demo win. Quantum Leap debuted to 3.5 mil and a 0.5 (and a reader grade of “B+”), which is on par with
Ill-Fated Ordinary Joe‘s year-ago launch — but keep in mind that The Voice was down 11 and 33 percent YOY as a lead-in.
Fox’s 9-1-1 season premiere (4.7 mil/0.7, reader grade “A-“) was down a tick from last season’s averages — That’s gonna be a theme this week, folks! There is no more steady or up in the #PeakTV era! — and tied The Voice in the demo. The Cleaning Lady (2.6 mil/0.4, reader grade “A-“) was also down a smidgen from its previous averages.
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. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
