Monday Final Nationals: ‘Houdini & Doyle’ Does Not Escape from Dismal Start for Fox

For the second consecutive Monday, ABC, NBC and TNT had a share in prime time victory. ABC was the night’s most-watched network with 9.92 million total viewers, NBC led in adults 18-49 (1.9 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (2.7/8), and TNT — earning its best nightly young adults delivery of this spring to-date — was tops among adults 18-34 (1.8 rating).

There was little sampling of the debut of Fox’s new drama “Houdini & Doyle,” off 34 percent (in live plus same day viewers) and 46 percent (in adults 18-49) from the week-ago time slot occupant, the season finale telecast of procedural “Lucifer.”

TNT was home to the top game of the “2016 NBA Playoffs” on cable to-date with Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinal series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs.
