    Ratings Breakdown:
    Fox inched past ABC for Monday overnight household dominance with its pairing of “The X-Files” (#1: 5.5 rating/8 share) and week two of drama “Lucifer” (#3: 4.0/ 6). Comparably, this third episode of “The X-Files” revival slipped by 11 percent from the 6.2/ 9 in the overnights one week earlier, but this was still 34 percent above the 4.1/ 6 for year-ago occupant “Gotham.” And that 6.2 in the overnights last week translated into 9.67 million viewers and a 3.2 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

    “Lucifer,” meanwhile, was down by an expected 13 percent in the overnights from its 4.6/ 7 debut one week earlier, but was still an improvement of 38 percent from year-ago occupant “Sleepy Hollow.” Overnight retention for “Lucifer” out of “The X-Files” was 73 percent. And that 4.6 overnight household rating translated into 7.16 million viewers and a 2.4/ 7 in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

    On ABC, “The Bachelor” scored a 5.4/ 8 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., which should translate in the vicinity of 7.5-8 million viewers with a 2.1 – 2.3 rating in adults 18-49. And it led into post-show “Bachelor Live” at a second-place 2.8/ 5 at 10 p.m.

    Over at NBC, recent sitcom entry “Superstore” is inching closer to a second season renewal with a 3.2/ 5 (#4) in the overnights in the 8 p.m. half-hour, which should be good for about a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49. But lead-out “Telenovela” dipped to a 2.1/ 3 at 8:30 p.m. (#2), which last week fell to a 0.9 in the demo. Next was two more hours of “The Biggest Loser” at a diluted 2.1/ 3 from 9-11 p.m. If you were a fan of NBC’s “The Office,” you should absolutely check out “Superstore.”

    Elsewhere, “Supergirl” on CBS dipped to a series-low 4.2/ 6 (#3) from 8-9 p.m., which was 12 percent below the 4.8/ 7 one week earlier. And it led into encore telecasts of “Scorpion” (#2: 4.2/ 6) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#1: 4.6/ 8) from 9-11 p.m.

    The CW capped off the night with its critically acclaimed but low-rated combination of one-hour comedies “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (#5: 0.7/ 1) and “Jane the Virgin” (#5: 0.8/ 1).

  • About the Daily Ratings
    Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

    If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent
    Ratings FAQ.
