ABC slipped week over week into a last place ratings tie among the Big 4 broadcast networks on Monday, though it wasn’t the saddest story in primetime. That unfortunate distinction belongs to CW series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” which premiered its fourth season as the lowest-rated and least-watched show — including the Spanish-language networks.

Much higher up the Nielsen sheets, NBC won another Monday night with “The Voice” and “Manifest.” Thanks mostly to “9-1-1” and no 10 o’clock hour of programming, Fox finished second among adults 18-49.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.6 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” from 8-10 p.m. averaged a 1.9/7 and 9.8 million viewers. “Manifest” at 10 received a 1.4/6 and 7.3 million viewers.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.1/4, but fourth in viewers with 5.2 million. “The Resident” at 8 had a 1.0/4 and 4.8 million viewers. At 9, “9-1-1” landed a 1.3/5 and 5.6 million viewers.

ABC and CBS tied for third in ratings, both with a 0.9. ABC had a 4 share, CBS had a 3. ABC was second in total viewers with 6.5 million, CBS was third with 5.9 million.

For ABC, “Dancing With the Stars” from 8-10 averaged a 1.0/5 and 7.1 million viewers. A rerun followed.

For CBS, “The Neighborhood” at 8 had a 1.1/5 and 6.4 million viewers. At 8:30, “Happy Together” got a 0.8/3 and 4.7 million viewers. “Magnum P.I.” at 9 received a 0.8/3 and 5.6 million viewers. At 10, “Bull” finished primetime with a 0.8/3 and 6.7 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.5 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.4 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.4/1 and in viewers with 1.1 million. “Arrow” at 8 had a 0.4/2 and 1.2 million viewers. At 9, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” got a 0.3/1 and 1 million viewers.
