“Supergirl” steadied itself after three weeks of freefall, with a replacement episode after the previously schedule original installment was yanked due to similarities with the Paris terror attacks.

CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles” also subbed out episodes for the same reason, though that show ticked down a bit.

NBC topped the main 18-49 demographic on Monday, as “Blindspot” hit a 5-week high. ABC topped total viewers thanks to “Dancing With the Stars.”

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.9 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, and second in total viewers with 10.4 million. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a 3.1/9 and 11.5 million viewers. “Blindspot” at 10 posted a 2.3/7 and 8.2 million viewers.

ABC and CBS tied for second in ratings, both with a 1.6/5. ABC was second in total viewers with 10.5 million; CBS was third with 8.2 million.

For ABC, “Dancing With the Stars” at 8 received a 1.8/5 and 12.3 million viewers. “Castle” at 10 had a 1.1/4 and 6.8 million viewers.

For CBS, “Supergirl” ticked up to a 1.8/5 and 7.9 million viewers. “Scorpion” at 9 had a 1.6/5 and 9.1 million viewers. “NCIS: Los Angeles” got a 1.2/4 and 7.8 million viewers.

Before Friday’s attacks, an episode of “Supergirl” dealing with bombings throughout National City had been set to air Monday, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. Instead, it will be replaced at 8 p.m. by an episode titled “Livewire,” in which Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) Thanksgiving plans are threatened when she suspects her foster mother, Dr. Danvers (Helen Slater), who is coming to town, disapproves of her new role as a superhero.

The previously scheduled episode of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” which focuses on ISIS recruitment, will be swapped out at 10 p.m. for an episode titled “The Long Goodbye,” which sees the team searching for Jada (Ella Thomas), the woman Sam (LL Cool J) led to asylum in the United States four years ago, after she goes missing.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 1.1/3 and in viewers with 3.1 million. “Gotham” at 8 received a 1.6/5 and 4.4 million viewers. “Minority Report” had a 0.7/2 and 1.8 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and in viewers with 2.2 million.

Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.7 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.5/1 and in viewers with 1.3 million. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” at 8 got a 0.4/1 and 1.2 million viewers. “Jane The Virgin” at 9 had a 0.6/2 and 1.5 million viewers.
