THE FIX doesn’t look like one.

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.

ABC:  AMERICAN IDOL dropped 0.2 from Sunday night to 1.1, an all-time low for the series.  THE FIX premiered at an unimpressive 0.7, down 0.6 from last week’s THE GOOD DOCTOR.

NBC:  THE VOICE easily won the night, but it was down 0.3 from last Monday to 1.7.  THE ENEMY WITHIN slipped 0.1 to 0.8.

FOX:  THE RESIDENT aired a new episode for the first time since February 18, and was steady at 0.9.  9-1-1 returned from a hiatus that started on November 26, and was down 0.2 to 1.2.

CW:  ARROW (0.3) and the season finale of BLACK LIGHTNING (0.2) were steady.

CBS:  The night’s only new sitcom was MAN WITH A PLAN, up 0.1 to 0.9 amid reruns at 0.6-0.9.  BULL aired its first new episode since February 25 and dropped 0.1 to 0.7.

Tonight, NBC introduces THE VILLAGE in the coveted post-THIS IS US slot.
