Nobody needs to call 9-1-1 for Fox’s Rob Lowe-starring “9-1-1” spinoff, “9-1-1: Lone Star.” Though the drama couldn’t keep up with ABC’s “The Bachelor” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” it did fine in its time slot premiere.

Plus, those two reality competitions are perennial all-stars. Very few shows could challenge them in Nielsen numbers.

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 5.95 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Bachelor” from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. averaged a 1.9 rating/9 and 6.2 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” got a 0.9/4 and 5.4 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 0.9/4 and third in viewers with 5.88 million. “AGT: Champions” from 8 to 10 drew a 1.1/5 and 7 million viewers. “Manifest” at 10 received a 0.7/4 and 3.7 million viewers.

Fox was third in ratings with a 0.8/4 and fourth in viewers with 4.5 million. “9-1-1: Lone Star” at 8 p.m. posted a 0.9/4 and 5.8 million viewers. At 9, “Prodigal Son” had a 0.7/3 and 3.1 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3, but first in viewers with 6.1 million. “The Neighborhood” at 8 got a 0.8/4 and 6.8 million viewers. At 8:30, “Bob Hearts Abishola” had a 0.7/3 and 6.4 million viewers. “All Rise” at 9 received a 0.6/3 and 5.7 million viewers. “Bull” at 10 closed out primetime with a 0.6/3 and 6 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.6 million.

Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.4/2 and in viewers with 1.2 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 616,000. “All American” at 8 had a 0.2/1 and 683,000. At 9, “Black Lightning” got a 0.2/1 and 549,000 viewers.
