“The Wall” had its best outing in a year Monday night. The NBC game show drew a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49, up 0.4 vs. last week to its highest mark since February 2017.
The season finale of “Better Late Than Never” (1.1) also improved, rising by 0.2 vs. last week. A Winter Olympics preview special (0.6) didn’t do much, however.
ABC led the night with “The Bachelor,” which was up a tenth of a point at 1.8, and “The Good Doctor,” whose 1.7 was even with its last episode. FOX also got improvements from “Lucifer” (1.0, +0.2) and “The Resident” (1.0, +0.1).
At CBS, “Kevin Can Wait,” “Superior Donuts” and the “9JKL” finale were all even with last week’s early numbers (“9JKL” adjusted up in the finals). “Man with a Plan” slipped a tenth to 1.0, and “Scorpion” was down two tenths to 0.7.
“Supergirl” was steady for The CW with a 0.6.

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.
