The ratings are now in for Monday night’s lineup, and while there wasn’t anything altogether flashy (hey, there weren’t a ton of new programs on the air), there are nonetheless a few separate things worth reporting at the moment.
CBS – Let’s start over here, given that The Eye had potentially the most robust lineup of programming on the night. The bad news is that “Scorpion,” despite having a rather-fun episode last night in “This Is the Pits,” drew just a series-low-tying 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Hopefully it won’t cause the show any harm in the long-term, since we do think that the only reason for the lower numbers here is having to air a little bit later at night and without much of a good lead-in.
Meanwhile, the comedy lineup didn’t exactly produce excellent numbers, either. “Kevin Can Wait” (1.4) led the night, while “Man with a Plan” (1.2), “2 Broke Girls” (1.2), and “The Odd Couple” (1.0) all hovered around some other recent performances.
NBC – As they kick off their finale week of shows, “The Voice” tonight brought in overall a 2.2 rating in the demo; meanwhile, “Timeless” saw itself on the upswing, scoring a 1.2 that ended up winning the timeslot. Maybe that’s a sign that the series could be renewed! Or, at the very least, we hope that it is.
ABC – The only other network airing new programming, the alphabet managed to get some improvement out of “The Great Christmas Light Fight,” which with a 1.3 and 1.2 rating over the course of its two episodes, really didn’t do a whole lot worse than some of the episodes of “Dancing with the Stars” as of late.
There were no ratings of note for either Fox or The CW.
