ABC won Monday’s primetime in TV ratings thanks to “Dancing With the Stars” Disney Night and the elimination of fan-favorite (or least favorite, depending on your taste) contestant Carole Baskin. At 10 o’clock, the decent series premiere of Luke Wilson’s new unscripted show “Emergency Call” helped add to the broadcaster’s victory. NBC aired Game 6 of the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Finals on Monday, when the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Dallas Stars to clinch the trophy. The network came in second place. And then there was a four-way tie. ABC was first in ratings with a 1.0 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 6.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Dancing With the Stars” from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. drew a 1.1/7 and 7 million viewers. At 10, “Emergency Call” debuted to a 0.7/4 and 4.3 million viewers. NBC was second in ratings with a 0.8/4 and in viewers with 2.9 million, airing the hockey clincher.

Fox, CBS, Univision and Telemundo all tied for third in ratings, each with a 0.3/2. Fox was third in total viewers with 2.2 million, CBS was fourth with 2.1 million, Univision was fifth with 1.1 million and Telemundo was sixth with 1 million.

For Fox, “L.A.’s Finest” at 8 had a 0.4/2 and 2.3 million viewers. At 9, “Filthy Rich” settled for a 0.3/2 and 2.1 million viewers. For CBS, following reruns, “Love Island” at 9 got a 0.4/2 and 1.8 million viewers. At 10, “Manhunt: Deadly Games” received a 0.2/1 and 1.4 million viewers.
