Seeing some healthy lifts after the biggest TV night of the year, NBC placed No. 2 on Monday with boosted episodes of The Wall (1.5 rating among adults 18-49) and Better Late Than Never (1.1 adults).

The pair were both improved to their best ratings in several weeks, while special The Best of the US: 2018 Winter Olympics wilted in the face of dominant 10 p.m. entry The Good Doctor, dipping down to a 0.6 rating in the key demo.

ABC's freshman drama pulled a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 and ranked as the night's most-watched program with 9.5 million viewers. It was only outperformed in the key demo by lead-in The Bachelor, which earned a steady 1.8 rating. The network easily took the night by all measures.

Fox offered up its own slightly improved lineup with new episodes of Lucifer and The Resident. Each earned a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. On CBS, Kevin Can Wait (1.2 adults), Man With a Plan (1.0 adults), Superior Donuts (1.0 adults) and 9JKL (0.8 adults) were all steady while Scorpion (0.7 adults) dipped to a season low.

The CW only aired a new Supergirl, which took a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49.
