“The Resident” returned from its winter hiatus to kick off a solid Monday night for FOX, and scored a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, making it the sophomore drama’s highest-rated episode since its season premiere last September.

It was followed by the series premiere of “The Passage” at 9 p.m., which got off to a pretty good start on the network with a 1.3 rating and 5.22 million viewers. It came in just a tenth below the 1.4 average that “9-1-1” had scored in the same time slot this past fall.

Elsewhere, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” led the night for the second week in a row, but ticked down from its premiere’s 1.8 to a 1.7 this week. “Manifest” took a bigger hit, and broke its recent 1.1 streak by dropping two-tenths to a season low 0.9.

ABC’s “The Bachelor” went the other way, however, and managed to tick up from its season premiere’s 1.5 to a 1.6 rating with 5.60 million viewers. “The Good Doctor” returned to round out ABC’s night at 10 p.m., and scored a solid 1.2 for itself, up from its fall finale’s 1.1.

On CBS, “The Neighborhood” returned up two-tenths from its last episode’s 1.0 to a 1.2. “Happy Together” (0.9) also inched up week-to-week with its season finale, while “Magnum P.I.” (0.7) returned down a tenth and “Bull” held steady with another 0.8.

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.

    I absolutely love the passage and not because mark Paul Gosselor is all grown up and is leading a serious role. It was entertaining and it showed that even though he is a veteran from teen years he still got it.
