The Voice hit its lowest adults 18-49 rating ever for a Monday episode, and a big Monday Night Football game may have taken some viewers from other shows, too.

The NBC singing competition drew a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, 0.3 below last week and a tenth of a point under its previous Monday low of 1.5 — which it hit several times in the spring 2018 season. Manifest tied last week's season low of 1.1.

Fox's dramas also hit or tied season lows: The Resident slipped a tenth from its last episode to 0.9, its first time under 1.0 for the season, and 911 equaled the season-low 1.2 for its previous outing. 

CBS' The Neighborhood (1.1), Happy Together (0.9) and Magnum P.I. (0.8) were all in line with recent numbers. A Bull rerun posted a 0.6 at 10 p.m. Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow both scored 0.3s on The CW.

ABC's numbers are inflated thanks to Monday Night Football preemptions in Los Angeles and Kansas City. The Dancing With the Stars finale is currently at 1.3 and The Good Doctor at 1.2; both should come down some in the finals.

As for Monday Night Football, its 11.3 household rating in metered markets was the highest for the franchise since 2014.

ABC and NBC are currently tied for the nightly lead at 1.3, pending updates for ABC. Fox averaged 1.1 in the 18-49 demo in primetime, followed by CBS, 0.8, and The CW, 0.3.

In the finals, Dancing With the Stars and The Good Doctor each adjusted down 1.1 in adults 18-49, and thus so did ABC's average for the night. That's a season high for DWTS. Demo ratings for all other shows held.
