The glass-half-empty reading for “The Good Doctor’s” ratings Monday is that the show tied its season low among adults 18-49 with a 1.6 rating.
The glass-half-full reading is that “The Good Doctor” was even with its last episode of 2017 despite airing opposite a highly rated College Football Playoff title game. Either way, “TGD” led the night on broadcast in both adults 18-49 and viewers (8.22 million).
“The Bachelor” was off slightly from its premiere last week, falling a tenth of a point to 1.4. NBC was the only other network airing originals: “The Wall” (1.0, +0.2) and “Better Late Than Never” (0.8, +0.1) each improved vs. last week, but “The Brave” returned to a season-low 0.6.
The CFP championship delivered a 16.7 household rating in metered markets for a three-channel simulcast. The main telecast on ESPN drew a 16.0, up 8 percent from last year and the top show of the night on all of TV by far. Final ratings will be out later in the day.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.5/5||1.0/4||0.8/3||0.5/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||6.41||5.10||4.03||1.74||0.94|

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.
