TV Ratings: 'Quantico' Lifted in Monday Move, Still Soft After 'The Bachelor'
Quantico went from having one of ABC's softest platforms to one of its best. But even though the drama was improved in its move from Sunday to Monday, its same-day score was not much to write home about.
Moving from Sunday's 10 p.m. roost for the first time since it premiered a year and a half ago, Quantico was up a decent two-tenths of a point in the key demo for its highest rating since October — a 0.9 among adults 18-49. But, with just under 3 million viewers, it lost a substantial portion of its Bachelor lead-in.
The ABC reality show again dominated Monday night, pulling a steady 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 between 8 and 10 p.m. The competition also averaged 7.3 million viewers, coming in just behind the bulk of CBS' original outings for the night.
Speaking of CBS, the network ranked No. 2 for the night in the key demo — with improved outings of Kevin Can Wait (1.7 adults), Man With a Plan (1.6 adults), 2 Broke Girls (1.7 adults) and Scorpion (1.3 adults). Gotham and Lucifer, each averaging a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, were steady with their last original episodes
On NBC, The New Celebrity Apprentice (produced by U.S. President Donald Trump) was down to a season low: a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers.
Supergirl returned with a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 on the CW, while Jane the Virgin also resumed its season — earning a 0.4 rating in the key demo.
