Monday was not a great night for the broadcast networks, with a number of shows taking sizable hits.

FOX still led the night, but “The X-Files” (2.6, -0.6 vs. last week) and “Lucifer” (1.9, -0.5) each dropped by at least half a point. “Supergirl” (1.5) fell three tenths for CBS. “The Bachelor” (2.2) and “Telenovela” (0.8) each dipped one tenth, while “Superstore” (1.4) was flat vs. last week’s fast nationals (the show adjusted up a bit in the finals).

The exception was The CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” which is currently showing a season-high 0.4, up a tenth from last week.

Note: An earlier version of this post had an incorrect viewer total for “Scorpion.” The correct total is above.

: 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.
