“The Resident” drew 4.7 million overall viewers on Monday. That’s good for Fox — but it’s not quite “Good Doctor” numbers, and ABC claimed another primetime victory with its better medical drama.

Fox tied CBS for second place in the key 18-49 demographic last night. The “Lucifer” home was fourth among total viewers, but it wasn’t too far behind NBC in that metric.

In its Sunday preview, “The Resident” hauled in 8.7 million total viewers — though that was thanks in large part to its NFC Championship game lead-in.

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.4 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Bachelor” at 8 p.m. posted a 1.8/6 and 6.3 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” landed a 1.7/7 and 9.5 million viewers.

CBS and Fox tied for second in ratings, both with a 1.0/4. CBS was second in total viewers with 5.8 million, Fox was fourth with 4.2 million.

For CBS, “Kevin Can Wait” at 8 had a 1.3/5 and 7.3 million viewers. At 8:30, “Man With a Plan” got a 1.2/4 and 6.6 million viewers. “Superior Donuts” at 9 received a 1.0/4 and 5.7 million viewers. At 9:30, “9JKL” closed the sitcom block with a 0.8/3 and 4.7 million viewers. “Scorpion” at 10 ended primetime to a 0.8/3 and 5.2 million viewers.

For Fox, “Lucifer” at 8 had a 0.9/3 and 3.8 million viewers. At 9, “The Resident” received a 1.0/4 and that aforementioned 4.7 million viewers.

NBC was fourth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and third in viewers with 4.6 million. “The Wall” at 8 got a 1.2/4 and 5.7 million viewers. At 9, “Better Late Than Never” had a 0.9/3 and 4.8 million viewers. “The Brave” at 10 settled for a 0.6/3 and 3.4 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was sixth in total viewers with 1.4 million, Telemundo was seventh with 1.2 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.3/1, but fifth in viewers with 1.5 million. “Supergirl” at 8 received a 0.5/2 and 2 million viewers. At 9, “Valor” managed a 0.2/1 and 1 million viewers.
