The night’s other premiere didn’t fare as well. “The Odd Couple” posted a 1.1 rating, down from a 1.5 for its Season 2 premiere last spring. It also lost half a point from its “2 Broke Girls” lead-in. The rest of CBS’ lineup — “The Big Bang Theory” (3.4), “Kevin Can Wait” (2.1) and “Scorpion” (1.3) — was steady compared to last week.
NBC’s “Timeless” (1.5) was even with its fast national number from a week ago (it adjusted down to 1.4 in the finals), despite a lower lead-in from “The Voice” (2.6, -0.3). ABC’s “Conviction” stayed below the 1.0 mark at 0.8; “Dancing With the Stars” dipped a tenth of a point to 1.5. “Gotham” and “Lucifer” (1.1 each) were also steady for FOX.

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.
