CBS needed divine intervention to see good ratings from its new sitcom “Living Biblically.” They didn’t get it.

The Jay R. Ferguson sitcom didn’t find a ton of faithful viewers with Monday’s debut, especially in the key 18-49 demographic. NBC’s “Good Girls” fared far better, though it had a nice lead-in with “The Voice” season premiere.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.3 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted demo and in total viewers with an average of 10.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. The two-hour “Voice” premiere at 8 p.m. earned a 2.8/11 and 12.2 million viewers. The “Good Girls” debut at 10 received a 1.5/6 and 6 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.6/6 and in viewers with 6.9 million. “The Bachelor” at 8 posted a 1.8/7 and 6.5 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” got a 1.3/5 and 7.8 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.4 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.297 million viewers.
