“Manifest” returned to NBC on Monday night after a one-week hiatus, and fans of the show seemed pretty happy to have it back.

NBC finished first in primetime again, when the network even enjoyed some growth from the prior Monday. Seven days ago, NBC substituted a “Wicked” Halloween special for its “Lost”-like airplane drama.

This Monday, ABC and Fox again tied for second in fast-national ratings, though the Disney-owned broadcaster’s Nielsen numbers may adjust down when ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game is factored out of a few local markets.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” from 8-10 p.m. averaged a 1.7/7 and 9 million viewers. “Manifest” at 10 landed a 1.3/6 and 6.3 million viewers.

This “Manifest’ episode slipped one-tenth of a ratings point from its last original and shed 1 million “live” viewers.

ABC and Fox tied for second in ratings, both with a 1.1. ABC had a 5 share, Fox had a 4. ABC was second in total viewers with 7.7 million, Fox was fourth with 5.3 million.

For ABC, “Dancing With the Stars” from 8-10 received a 1.1/4 and 7.8 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” got a 1.3/5 and 7.5 million viewers.

For Fox, “The Resident” at 8 had a 1.0/4 and 5 million viewers. At 9, “9-1-1” slipped from the prior week to a 1.2/5 and 5.6 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and third in viewers with 5.5 million. “The Neighborhood” at 8 had a 1.0/4 and 5.8 million viewers. At 8:30, “Happy Together” got a 0.8/3 and 4.2 million viewers. “Magnum P.I.” at 9 received a 0.8/3 and 5.2 million viewers. At 10, “Bull” closed primetime with a 0.8/3 and 6.4 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.5 million.
