Ratings: Fox’s ‘The Gifted’ Premiere Solid, But Still Falls to ‘The Voice’ and ‘DWTS’

CBS’ “9JKL” debut does decent with “Big Bang Theory” lead-in

“The Gifted” wasn’t tossed aside in its Monday debut, but the Fox show couldn’t quite compete with NBC’s “The Voice” and ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Still, last night was a solid start for the X-Men-universe series.

CBS’ “9JKL” debuted fairly well out of “The Big Bang Theory,” though the new sitcom sunk 39 percent from its lead-in among over audience members, and 47 percent in the key 18-49 demographic. So you can qualify the start for us in our comments section.

All that said, NBC won Monday’s primetime in the main demo and ABC claimed the largest overall audience, on average. This is just how things work when “The Voice” and “DWTS” are on.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.0 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with 9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.5/9 and 10.8 million total viewers. At 10, “The Brave” received a 1.2/4 and 5.4 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.9/7 and first in viewers with 10.2 million. “Dancing With the Stars” at 8 earned a 1.6/6 and 9.5 million viewers. “The Good Doctor” at 10 posted a 2.4/9 and 11.5 million viewers.

Those shows were pre-empted in the Kansas City and Washington D.C. markets for sister-channel ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”

CBS was third in ratings with a 1.5/5 and in viewers with 7.4 million. “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 put up a 3.0/12 and 13.7 million viewers.
