Despite the crowded TV slate across network channels on Monday night, the evening's two superhero series managed to hold steady ratings, clearing up their trajectory for the rest of the season.
Supergirl aired a new episode on The CW at 8 p.m. ET, going up against a solid slate of CBS sitcoms, The Voice and Dancing with the Stars. Even in the face of competition, Supergirl stayed steady with 1.86 million viewers, posting a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The episode was followed by freshman military series Valor (1.2 mil/0.3), which also held its numbers.
Fox's X-Men series The Gifted (3.4 mil/1.1) was steady from last week, even though it had a solid lead-in from Lucifer (3.7 mil/1.1) which saw a slight rise.
Over on CBS, a shakeup to the comedy schedule helped bring numbers up a bit from last week's network low. Kevin Can Wait (6.3 mil/1.2) was steady, while Superior Donuts (5.4 mil/1.0) and Scorpion (5.1 mil/0.8) ticked up. A rerun of The Big Bang Theory (5.9 mil/1.1) posted solid numbers, and 9JKL (4.4 mil/0.8) noticed another drop in its audience, posting series lows.
The Voice (9.4 mil/1.9) started things off for NBC, with its two-hour episode leading the night in the demo audience. The competition was followed by The Brave (5.2 mil/1.0) which saw a significant rise from last week.
Pending the adjustment due to the NFL's Monday Night Football game, Dancing with the Stars (9.9 mil/1.4) was steady while ABC's Luke Bryan special grabbed another six million viewers.
