The premiere of “The Crossing” on ABC fell well short of “The Good Doctor’s” ratings in the 10 p.m. Monday spot, but the show’s numbers weren’t too bad.
“The Crossing” posted a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 following “American Idol” (1.4, -0.2 vs. last week). It led the 10 o’clock hour in the demographic and in total viewers (5.45 million).
“The Voice” carried NBC to a win for the night with a 1.9, off a tenth of a point from a week ago. “Good Girls” was even with last week’s final 0.9. “Legends of Tomorrow” also held steady at 0.4 on The CW.
CBS’ “Living Biblically” (0.8) ticked up following a block of “Big Bang Theory” and “Young Sheldon” reruns. FOX took the night off opposite the NCAA men’s championship game on TBS.

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.
