Ratings Breakdown:
ABC scored a solid Monday overnight victory, besting No. 2 NBC by 31 percent in households with its combination of old faithful “Dancing With the Stars” (#1 for the night: 6.7 rating/11 share from 8-10 p.m.) and newbie hit “The Good Doctor” (#1: 6.6/12 at 10 p.m.). Comparably, “The Good Doctor” was 113 percent above failed year-ago time period occupant “Conviction” (3.1/ 5 on 11/14/16), and it outdelivered competing “Scorpion” on CBS (#2: 3.3/ 6) and “The Brave” on NBC (#3: 3.1/ 5) combined.

Although Freddie Highmore never received any Emmy attention for his five season stint on A&E drama “Bates Motel,” that should easily be rectified with “The Good Doctor.”

In season-premiere news, CBS sitcom “Man With a Plan” opened season two with a modest 3.4/ 5 in the household overnights at 8:30 p.m., which was 13 percent below its year-ago overnight performance (3.9/ 6 on 11/14/16). Retention out of lead-in “Keven Can Wait” (#3: 4.0/ 6 at 8 p.m.), however, was solid at 85 percent.

Next on CBS was sophomore “Superior Donuts” at a 3.2/ 5 in the 9 p.m. half-hour (#3), which is like a modern day “Cheers” set in a donut shop and is worthy of a larger audience. That led into a series-low 2.9/ 5 (#3) for freshman “Apt. 9JKL” at 9:30 p.m., which is similar to former failed time period occupant “Me, Myself & I.” One year earlier, “The Odd Couple” scored a 3.1/ 5 in the time period.

On NBC, “The Voice” was on the overnight map with a second-place 6.0/10 from 8-10 p.m., which will be more than enough to win the two-hour block in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics).

Elsewhere, both Fox (“Lucifer”: #4: 2.7/ 4 at 8 p.m.; “The Gifted”: #4: 2.2/ 3 at 9 p.m.) and The CW (“Supergirl” #5: 1.4/ 2; “Valor”: #5: 0.6/ 1 at 9 p.m.) were at typical overnight levels.
