NBC scored an across-the-board ratings win Monday night with “The Voice” and the second-season premiere of “Better Late than Never.”

“The Voice” scored a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, even with last week’s fast nationals (it adjusted down to 1.8 in the finals). “Better Late than Never” opened with a 1.1, down from its summer 2016 average of 1.5 but slightly ahead of “The Brave’s” average in the time period earlier this season.

CBS’ comedies were mostly down as “Kevin Can Wait” (1.1), “Man with a Plan” (1.0) and “9JKL” season-low 0.7) each fell a tenth of a point from their last episodes. “Superior Donuts” (0.9) and “Scorpion” (0.9) held steady.

“Lucifer” was off a tenth at 0.8 for FOX, but “The Gifted” matched last week’s 0.8. “Valor” (0.2) was even with last week on The CW. ABC’s numbers are likely inflated with a couple of “Monday Night Football” pre-emptions, but “The Great Christmas Light Fight” will probably be on par with last week’s 1.0 in the finals. “The Bachelor: Countdown to Arie” is currently at 0.8, pending updates.

Definitions:

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.
