Monday was a pretty decent night for the broadcast networks. ABC got steady numbers from the premiere of “The Bachelor,” “Superstore” and “Telenovela” held up reasonably well in their time-period premieres on NBC and CBS was up across the board.
“The Bachelor” (2.2) was in line with its premiere last season, although not many people stuck around for the debut of aftershow “Bachelor Live” (1.1). “Superstore’s” 1.7 was off just 0.3 from its “Voice”-aided premiere in November, while “Telenovela” fell only 0.1 from its post-“Voice” slot. “The Biggest Loser” (1.2), on the other hand, was off 0.4 from last season’s premiere.
On CBS, “Supergirl” (1.8) had its best number since mid-November, “Scorpion” (2.1) hit its highest rating since the season premiere and “NCIS: Los Angeles” scored a season-high 1.6. FOX’s special “Superhuman” scored a 1.2.

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.
