It was another strong Monday night for FOX.

“9-1-1” stayed atop the night’s primetime shows with the same 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 that it scored last Monday, and its 6.47 million viewer audience is also up from the 6.08 million viewers it raked in a week ago. Its lead-out, “Prodigal Son,” followed it with a 0.8, up one-tenth from its last episode’s 0.7.

NBC’s “The Voice” placed second in the night’s 18-49 rankings, as it slipped from its 1.3 rating last Monday to a 1.2 this week. Despite the small ratings hit, “The Voice” still managed to generate the night’s largest audience, with 7.53 million viewers. Meanwhile, “Bluff City Law” held steady with yet another 0.5.

Elsewhere, ABC’s preliminary ratings are likely inflated once again, thanks to an NFL preemption in the San Francisco market. So pending updates, “Dancing with the Stars” is sitting at a 1.0, up two-tenths from its 0.8 final rating last week. “The Good Doctor” (0.8) is also currently up one-tenth from its previous 0.7.

On the CW, “All American” and “Black Lightning” returned from a week off with the same 0.2 ratings as their last outings. CBS took the night off, airing only repeats.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.1/5 1.0/4 1.0/4 0.6/3 0.2/1
Total Viewers (millions) 4.93 6.78 6.26 4.30 0.74



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.
