Ratings: ‘Valor’ Debut Discharged on CW’s Fall Premiere Night

New show suffers from soft “Supergirl” lead-in

Last Updated: October 10, 2017 @ 11:43 AM

The CW’s “Valor” didn’t quite earn its stripes last night.

The new drama failed to post a strong series debut in Monday’s primetime, when The CW officially kicked off its own Fall season. “Supergirl’s” season premiere an hour earlier didn’t exactly blast off either, which doesn’t help. As a result, The CW settled for a last-place finish in the key adults 18-49 demographic — yes, behind even Telemundo and Univision.

Thanks to “The Voice,” NBC finished first in that demo last night. With “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC claimed the most overall eyeballs.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.0 rating/10 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.4/8 and 10.8 million viewers. At 10, “The Brave” had a 1.2/4 and 5.3 million viewers.

ABC and CBS tied for second in ratings, both with a 1.5/5. ABC was first in total viewers with 9.6 million, CBS was third with 7.2 million.

For ABC, “DWTS” a 8 earned a 1.3/4 and 9.1 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” posted a 1.9/7 and 10.6 million viewers.

For CBS, “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 put up a 2.8/10 and 13 million viewers. At 8:30, “9JKL” had a 1.5/5 and 7.7 million viewers. “Kevin Can Wait” at 9 got a 1.4/5 and 6.7 million viewers. “Me, Myself & I” at 9:30 received a 1.1/3 and 5 million viewers. At 10, “Scorpion” closed primetime with a 1.0/4 and 5.4 million viewers.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 1.1/4 and in viewers with 3.6 million. “Lucifer” at 8 had a 0.9/3 and 3.3 million viewers. At 9, “The Gifted” got a 1.2/4 and 3.9 million viewers.

Telemundo was fifth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.6 million.

Univision was sixth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and seventh in viewers with 1.3 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.4/1 and sixth in viewers with 1.5 million. “Supergirl” at 8 settled for a 0.5/2 and 1.9 million viewers. At 9, “Valor” managed a 0.3/1 and 1.2 million viewers.
