The Good Doctor and The Voice proved to be the true champions of Monday night TV, giving each other stiff competition to claim the title of most-watched show of the night.
Ultimately, it was ABC’s The Good Doctor that took the crown, with 10.5 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in the key 18-49 demo. Dancing with the Stars was only slightly behind that, with 10.1 million viewers and a 1.5 rating in the demo, up significantly from last week. All in all, ABC won the night with a 1.7 and 10.3 million viewers.
NBC came in second place with a 1.6 and 8 million viewers. Both The Voice (9.5 mil/1.9) and The Brave (5.1 mil/1.0) remained steady with the previous week’s ratings.
Elsewhere on TV, Fox saw freshman drama The Gifted (3 mil/0.9) dip below Lucifer (3.6 mil/1.), which was even.
CBS had a disappointing night with the season 2 premiere of Man With a Plan (5.4 mil/1.0), which slipped significantly in both measures from its series premiere last October. Superior Donuts (5 mil/0.5) also slipped, while Kevin Can Wait (6.1 mil/1.2), 9JKL (4.4 mil/0.8), and Scorpion (4.7 mil/0.8) were all even.
The CW averaged a 0.3 and 1.4 million viewers, claiming fifth place. Supergirl (1.9 mil/0.5) held even, but Valor (0.98 mil/0.2) dropped in both measurements.
