NBC’s “The Voice” stayed on top of the Monday primetime ratings this week, taking the no. 1 spot in the adults 18-49 demo with the same 1.2 rating it scored a week ago. The singing-competition series was the night’s most-watched broadcast as well, with 7.2 million viewers. At 10 p.m., “The Enemy Within” similarly held steady week-to-week, matching its last episode’s 0.6.

Elsewhere, FOX’s “9-1-1” came second in the night, and ticked down from its previous 1.2 to a 1.1. “The Resident” went the other way, climbing back up from a 0.8 to a 0.9.

ABC grabbed a 0.8 average rating with 5.61 million viewers from its “The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story” special. “The Fix” followed it by dipping from a 0.5 to a season low 0.4.

CBS’ “Man with a Plan” had only a “Big Bang Theory” rerun as its lead-in, but still managed to tick up one-tenth to a 0.8. “The Code,” however, slipped from a 0.6 to a 0.5, while “Bull” returned from a week off with another 0.6.

On the CW, “Legends of Tomorrow” grabbed a 0.3, up a tenth from its 0.2 final last week, and “Arrow” (0.2) stayed even.

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.
