Mondays seem to be settling into place.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

CW:  ARROW was steady with last week’s season premiere at 0.4.  The season premiere of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW fell 0.3 from the 2017 premiere to a series low 0.3, but last season it launched on Tuesdays with a lead-in from THE FLASH.  The rating was down 0.1 from last season’s finale on a Monday in April.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS is currently up 0.2 to 1.1, which may be inflated by a local NFL preemption.  A rerun of the pilot for THE ROOKIE followed at 0.7.

CBS:  THE NEIGHBORHOOD held at 1.1, and HAPPY TOGETHER was down 0.1 to 0.8.  MAGNUM PI slipped 0.1 to 0.8, and BULL stayed at 0.8.

NBC:  THE VOICE was steady at 1.9, and MANIFEST lost 0.1 to 1.4.

FOX:  THE RESIDENT remained at 1.0, and 9-1-1 was down 0.1 to 1.3.

THE WORLD SERIES begins tonight on FOX.  On cable, THE GUEST BOOK returns to TBS.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 live+same day ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.

CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top cable programs from this day.
