Ratings: ‘Man With a Plan’ Premiere Has No Blueprint Against ‘DWTS,’ ‘The Voice’

Matt LeBlanc’s home network CBS settles for fourth in Monday’s key 18-49 demographic

Matt LeBlanc’s “Man With a Plan” returned last night to CBS. Based on its Nielsen numbers, the sitcom may need a better plan.

CBS settled for fourth place in the key 18-49 demographic last night, when ABC leapfrogged NBC to finish first outright. They Disney-owned broadcaster was preempted in the Miami and Charlotte markets for “Monday Night Football,” however, so the network’s primetime averages are subject to some extra adjustment, which could shake up the evening’s demo podium.

“The Voice,” “The Good Doctor” and “Dancing With the Stars” were the big players between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. — see how every original performed in primetime below.
