Halloween night was no treat for the broadcast networks, as they were down pretty much across the board and a number of shows hit series lows.

The CW’s “Supergirl” (0.6 rating in adults 18-49), NBC’s “Timeless” (1.1) and FOX’s “Gotham” and “Lucifer” (0.9 each) all recorded their lowest ratings ever, with the two FOX shows going under 1.0 for the first time. “The Voice” was down seven tenths of a point week to week to a 2.0 for NBC, while CBS’ “Kevin Can Wait” (1.4) is down two tenths. (TV-viewing levels are typically lower than usual on Halloween.)

CBS’ numbers are subject to change due to a “Monday Night Football” pre-emption in Minneapolis. Currently “Man With a Plan” is at 1.5, off 0.1 from its premiere last week. “Scorpion” (1.4), “2 Broke Girls” (1.5) and “The Odd Couple” (1.2) are each up a little, pending updates.

On the bright(ish) side, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” (1.5) is running on par with last week’s 1.6, and “Jane the Virgin” is even at 0.4.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.7/6 1.4/5 1.2/4 0.9/3 0.5/2
Total Viewers (millions) 7.95 6.45 8.39 3.24 1.61

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.
