“The Bachelor” won the battle of the two-hour reality shows Monday night, scoring the evening’s best 18-49 rating on the broadcast networks. The season premiere delivered a 2.1 in the 18-49 demographic, off 0.1 from last year’s premiere. It was also down about a million viewers vs. the 2016 debut (6.56 million vs. 7.55 million).

“The New Celebrity Apprentice” premiered to a 1.3 on NBC, well below “The Voice’s” fall average (as expected) and about a point below the premiere of the previous “Celeb Apprentice” in 2015. “The Wall” earned a 1.2, in line with “Timeless'” average in the time period.

CBS’ shows were all in line with their recent performances, with “Kevin Can Wait” (1.4) earning top marks for the network. “Masterchef Celebrity Showdown” on FOX cooked up a 0.9.

Network averages:

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.

    […] Ratings are in from last night and there’s good news and bad news. Good news is the show won its 18-49 demographic for the night. Bad news is they lost 1 million viewers from last season’s premiere, and down .1 of a ratings point. Look, it’t not like the show’s getting cancelled anytime soon, but those are pretty average numbers. Also, went up against the end of the Rose Bowl and the Sugar Bowl for most of the US, so that didn’t help. And next week will be even lower going up against the National Championship game. But for a little context, here are the last four Bachelor premiere numbers (millions of viewers, followed by rating): […]
