Monday night was a fairly steady one in the ratings, with most shows drawing numbers in line with their most recent episodes. Two exceptions, however, were the two biggest shows of the night.

“Dancing with the Stars” opened its spring season to a 1.8 in adults 18-49, down from the 2.1 for both the fall and the spring 2015 cycles. “The Voice” (2.7) was off three tenths vs. last week as well.

“Gotham” and “Supergirl” both held steady with their 1.3s from a week ago. CBS’ “Scorpion” (1.5) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.3) were even, as were FOX’s “Lucifer” (1.2) and ABC’s “Castle” (1.1) NBC’s “Blindspot” is currently even with last week’s final 1.6, but down a tenth from its fast national number.

: 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.
