Without an NCAA championship to compete with, NBC’s “The Voice” returned to the top in the Monday primetime ratings this week.

The singing-competition series took the night’s no. 1 spot in the adults 18-49 demo with a 1.3 rating, up a tenth from its previous 1.2, and led the night in total viewers with 7.59 million. “The Enemy Within,” meanwhile, posted the same 0.6 that it did a week ago.

Elsewhere, it was a down night for FOX, as both “The Resident” (0.7) and “9-1-1” returned from a week off, down two-tenths from their last episodes and hitting new lows in the 18-49 demo.

On CBS, “The Neighborhood” (1.0) and “Man with a Plan” (0.8) returned in steady fashion, matching their previous outings. “Bull” stayed even as well, leading the 10 p.m. hour with a 0.6 and 6.59 million viewers. “The Code,” however, made its Monday night debut at 9 p.m. and grabbed a 0.6, down a tenth from its Tuesday premiere’s 0.7 last week.

ABC’s “American Idol” was the night’s second-highest-rated broadcast, and managed to tick back up one-tenth from the 1.1 it had scored last Monday to a 1.2 this week. “Idol” also had its most-watched Monday night broadcast of the season so far, with 7.05 million viewers. “The Fix” followed it with yet another 0.5.

Rounding out the night, the CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.3) held steady, while “Arrow” scored a 0.2 at 9 p.m., tying its season low.

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.
