It was an up night for several shows in the Monday primetime ratings, including “9-1-1,” which tied for the night’s demo win.

Moving from 9 p.m. to 8 p.m. this week, the FOX drama wrapped up its second season with a five-episode ratings high, scoring a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 with 6.35 million viewers, up from its penultimate episode’s 1.1 and 5.81 million viewers. “9-1-1’s” ratings uptick did not, however, help “Paradise Hotel,” which followed it by ticking down one-tenth to a low 0.4.

Elsewhere, ABC’s “The Bachelorette” premiered slightly earlier than it did last year, posting a 1.3 with 4.67 million viewers, down a tenth from last season premiere. “The Fix” followed it with a 0.4, up one-tenth week-to-week.

On NBC, “The Voice” rose a tenth from its 1.1 last week to a 1.2 this time around, and did rake in the night’s largest audience with 7.6 million viewers. “The Enemy Within” held steady with yet another 0.6.

Following back-to-back “Big Bang Theory” repeats, CBS’ “The Code” managed to tick up from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6, while the season finale of “Bull” scored a 0.7, up a tenth from its penultimate episode’s 0.6.

The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.3) matched its rating from a week ago, as did the “Arrow” (0.2) season finale.

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.
