TV Ratings: 'The Resident' Softens, 'Bachelor' Stays on Top
ABC swept its second Monday in a row, thanks to a still-resilient Bachelor.
The two-hour episode fetched a steady 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers. The reality show led into a new The Good Doctor, which also held its 1.7 rating among adults 18-49.
Monday marked the second episode of Fox's The Resident. Expectedly, it took a steep spill from its post-NFL sampling Sunday night. The drama averaged a 1.0 rating in the key demo and 4.7 million viewers, meaning it improved on its Lucifer lead-in by both measures.
CBS was also steady, week to week, with Kevin Can Wait (1.3 adults), Man With a Plan (1.2 adults), Superior Donuts (1.0 adults) and Scorpion (0.8 adults) all holding up; 9JKL slipped two-tenths of a point to a 0.8 rating. The NBC lineup — The Wall (1.2 adults), Better Late Than Never (0.9 adults), The Brave (0.6 adults) — held as well.
