TV Ratings: 'The Bachelor' Gives ABC a Win Without 'Good Doctor'
The Bachelor held steady and dominant for the third straight Monday, averaging a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 for ABC.
The score, half of a point ahead of the closest competition (CBS' Kevin Can Wait), drove ABC to a nightly win even though lead-out The Good Doctor was the Big Four's only repeat for the night.
CBS placed second with a steady lineup of Kevin Can Wait (1.2 adults), Man With a Plan (1.1 adults), Superior Donuts (1.0 adults), 9JKL (0.8 adults) and Scorpion (0.9 adults).
The second regularly scheduled episode of The Resident was also steady on Fox, earning a 0.9 rating in the key demo and 4.7 million viewers after a new Lucifer (0.8 adults).
NCB put out new episodes of The Wall (1.1 adults), Better Late Than Never (0.9 adults) and The Brave (0.7 adults). On the CW, Supergirl improved to a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 before a flat Valor (0.2 adults).
