Coming off its renewal a few weeks ago, CBS’ “The Neighborhood” returned from hiatus and hit a new series high in the adults 18-49 demo, up a tenth from its last episode’s 1.3 rating to a 1.4. The season 3 premiere of “Man with a Plan” followed with a 1.1, a tenth higher than its second season’s fall 2017 premiere and its season 2 finale last May.

The two comedies pushed “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition” to the 9 p.m. hour, but the reality-competition series posted the same 1.1 it did a week ago. “Bull” returned, and stayed even with another 0.8.

It was ABC’s “The Bachelor” that won the night in adults 18-49 though, with the same 1.8 it had scored last Monday. NBC’s “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” (1.6) fell two-tenths week-to-week – coming second in the demo – but was the night’s most-watched show with an average 9.79 million viewers.

“The Good Doctor” rounded out the night for ABC and won its 10 p.m. hour, but fell a tenth to a 1.0. “Manifest” capped off NBC’s night in similar fashion, down from its previous 1.0 to a 0.9, tying its season low.

After taking a small hit last week, FOX’s “The Resident” managed to tick back up from a 0.9 to a 1.0, while “The Passage” maintained a 0.9 for its second week in a row. Elsewhere, it was another steady Monday night for the CW, as both “Arrow” (0.4) and “Black Lightning” (0.3) matched their previous 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.
