“9-1-1” managed a small uptick in the Monday primetime ratings this week, leading the night with a 1.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 5.98 million viewers, up from the 1.1 and 5.65 million viewers it scored last week. “The Resident,” however, held onto its previous 0.8.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “The Neighborhood” wrapped up its first season in steady fashion, scoring the same 1.0 that it did a week ago. The same could not be said for “Man with a Plan,” which fell from a 0.9 to a 0.7, tying its season low, while “The Code” ticked up from a 0.5 to a 0.6.

NBC’s “The Voice” tied with “9-1-1” as the night’s highest-rated broadcast with a 1.2, down a tenth from its 1.3 last Monday, but led the night in total viewers with 7.49 million. “The Enemy Within” followed “The Voice” with its third straight 0.6.

A special recap episode of ABC’s “American Idol” grabbed a 0.9 with 5.42 million viewers, predictably down three-tenths from its 1.2 last week. Its lead-out, “The Fix,” stayed even with yet another 0.5.

On the CW, “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.3) and “Arrow” (0.2) both matched their last episodes.

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.
