NBC’s “The Voice” remained Monday night’s highest-rated primetime broadcast, despite ticking down from the 1.7 it had scored a week ago to a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49 this time around.

“The Enemy Within” capped off the night for NBC with the same 0.8 rating as its previous episode. Combined, the two shows won all six of the night’s primetime half-hours, giving NBC a dominant win over the other networks, in both the adults 18-49 and total viewer measures.

Elsewhere, ABC’s “American Idol” held onto the 1.2 series low rating it had scored last Monday, while “The Fix” slipped from its series premiere’s 0.7 to a 0.6 in its second week. FOX’s recently-renewed “9-1-1” (1.2) and “The Resident” (0.9) both matched their ratings from a week ago. “9-1-1” also tied with “Idol” as the night’s second-highest-rated broadcast.

On CBS, both “The Neighborhood” (1.0) and “Magnum P.I.” (0.7) returned in steady fashion, but the same could not be said for “Man with a Plan,” which slipped from a 0.9 to a 0.8.

Additionally, the network’s “Mueller Report: A Turning Point” news special grabbed a 0.4 with 3.13 million viewers at 10 p.m. Meanwhile, the CW’s “Arrow” stayed even with yet another 0.3.

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.
