Fox won Monday primetime in both the key demo and overall audience size, the latter being a victory that just last week went to NBC, according to initial ratings data from Nielsen.
But with “The Voice” shedding a chunk of viewers last night, and NBC’s new drama “Debris” losing more of its already small crowd, Fox managed to come out on top outright for the evening thanks to its block of new “9-1-1” and “9-1-1: Lone Star” episodes.
Meanwhile, CBS tied ABC for third in ratings, with CBS airing a couple sitcoms and dramas, and ABC filling its lineup with a Disney movie broadcast and reruns.
