“The Voice” was Monday night’s no. 1 show in both adults 18-49 and total viewers yet again, but took small hits in both measures.

The NBC singing-competition series posted a 1.5 rating with 8.42 million viewers, down from the 1.6 and 9 million viewers it had scored last Monday. “The Enemy Within” capped off the night for NBC, and held steady with a 0.8.

It was a down night for ABC’s “American Idol” too, as it fell from its previous 1.2 to a new series low 1.1 with 6.21 million viewers. “The Fix” similarly dropped another tenth to a 0.5.

Elsewhere, FOX’s “9-1-1” was the night’s only primetime broadcast to actually tick up week-to-week, rising from its last episode’s 1.2 to a 1.3 this week, with 6.08 million viewers. Meanwhile, “The Resident” posted the same 0.9 that it did a week ago.

On CBS, “The Neighborhood” (1.0) and “Man with a Plan” (0.8) both stayed even, as did the season finale of “Magnum P.I.” (0.7). “Bull,” however, returned from a week off, down one-tenth to a 0.6.

The midseason premiere of the CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow” grabbed a 0.3, down a tenth from its fall finale’s 0.4, but on par with its overall average so far this season. A special episode of “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” followed “Legends” with a 0.2.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.3/6 1.1/5 0.9/4 0.7/3 0.2/1

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.
