NBC was Monday’s top network among total viewers (7.79 million), adults 18-49 (1.6 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (2.2/7). TNT, with the help of the night’s most-watched, top-rated cable telecast — Golden State-Utah Game 4 in the second round of the “2017 NBA Playoffs”, led all of TV among adults 18-34 (approx. 1.1 rating) from 8-11 p.m.

Three CBS sitcoms — “Kevin Can Wait”, “Superior Donuts” and “The Great Indoors” — each sank to season lows in total viewers and adults 18-49, based on live plus same day data, with each respective season finale telecast. Nonetheless, “Kevin Can Wait” and “Superior Donuts” were already renewed by CBS for the 2017-18 season.

  1. On TBS, much-hyped Angie Tribeca can’t even beat the low-rated Family Guy reruns…

    I assume they’ll order a third season claiming un counted hordes of fans on the internet… 🙁
