Monday final ratings: ‘Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Gotham’ adjust up, ‘Kevin’ and ‘Good Place’ hold


Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, Sept. 19, 2016

Monday’s two series premieres held onto their solid ratings from the early numbers to the finals, and two veteran shows saw their adults 18-49 ratings rise.

“The Big Bang Theory” (3.8) adjusted up two tenths of a point for CBS, although it’s still 0.9 behind last year’s premiere. “Gotham” rose one tenth to 1.3, off from last season’s 1.6 for its premiere but even with its finale. The premieres of “Kevin Can Wait” (2.6) and “The Good Place” (2.3) held steady. “Supergirl” reruns on The CW adjusted down after factoring out a pre-emption in New York.

Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in green; downward adjustments are in red.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
