Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Monday, November 12, 2018

Note: Local NFL pre-emptions on the CW will result in greater adjustments than usual for the network in the finals.

The numbers for Monday:

8 p.m. The Voice (NBC) (8-10 p.m.) 1.7/6 8.96
The Neighborhood (CBS) 1.1/5 6.14
Dancing with the Stars (ABC) (8-10 p.m.) 0.9/4 7.32
The Resident (FOX) – R 0.6/3 2.76
Arrow (The CW) 0.5/2 1.58

10 p.m. Manifest (NBC) 1.1/5 6.10
The Good Doctor (ABC) 1.0/5 6.52
Bull (CBS) 0.8/3 6.43


CBS’ “The Neighborhood” ticked up Monday night, from a 1.0 to a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, tying with NBC’s “Manifest” as the night’s no. 1 scripted show in the demo. “Happy Together,” “Magnum P.I.,” and “Bull” rounded out the night for CBS, and scored the same 0.8s that they had a week ago.

Elsewhere, “Manifest” continued to fall in the ratings, down another tenth to a season low 1.1. “The Voice” was the night’s highest-rated show, but was similarly down week-to-week from a 1.8 to a 1.7.

ABC’s “The Good Doctor” (1.0) and “Dancing with the Stars” (0.9) stayed even with their previous episodes, while The CW’s “Arrow” (0.5) and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” (0.4) are both up a tenth from last Monday. However, due to the network’s “Monday Night Football” pre-emption in New York City, both CW shows will likely adjust down in the finals later today.

FOX took the night off with “The Resident” (0.6) and “9-1-1” (0.6) reruns.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.5/6 0.9/4 0.8/3 0.6/3 0.4/2

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.
