Monday's American Idol brought all-time low ratings for the series.

The show, which profiled the remaining eight finalists, delivered the singing competition's first-ever adults 18-49 rating below 1.0, coming in at 0.9. Its 5.42 million viewers were also a series low on either ABC or Fox. Idol's previous lows were 1.0 in the demo, set earlier this season, and 5.5 million viewers during season 14 on Fox.

Following Idol, The Fix was steady at 0.5 in adults 18-49 for ABC.

The Voice (1.2 in adults 18-49) tied its low for a regular episode, but the NBC show continued its head-to-head winning streak over Idol and ranked No. 1 for the night in both adults 18-49 — tied with Fox's 911 — and viewers (7.49 million). The Enemy Within held at 0.6 in the 18-49 demographic.

On Fox, 911 ticked up week to week, while The Resident matched its 0.8 demo rating from a week ago. The season finale of The Neighborhood on CBS was also steady at 1.0, but Man With a Plan slipped two-tenths of a point to 0.7. The Code was even in adults 18-49 at 0.5 and ticked up slightly in viewers to 4.61 million; a Bull repeat aired at 10 p.m.

The CW's Legends of Tomorrow (0.3) and Arrow (0.2) were even with last week. Telemundo's La Reina del Sur opened a long-anticipated new season to a 0.9 in adults 18-49, way above its usual average.

Fox and NBC tied for the adults 18-49 lead in primetime, averaging 1.0 apiece. ABC finished third at 0.8, followed by Telemundo, 0.7; CBS, 0.6; Univision, 0.4; and The CW, 0.2.
