Ratings Breakdown:
NBC topped the Monday household overnights, besting No. 2 ABC by five percent. But NBC’s position in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics) will certainly be greater thanks to “The Voice.”

ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” topped the night in these household overnights, with a 7.5 rating/11 share from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, however, that was 12 percent below the 8.5/13 on the year-ago evening. And it led into a mere 2.8/ 5 (#3) for newbie drama “Conviction” at 10 p.m., which at this point is just waiting for the proverbial axe to officially swing.

NBC’s “The Voice” (6.4/10 from 8-10 p.m.) was also below average, slipping by 18 percent from the 7.8/12 from the year-ago evening. But the “Saturday Night Live 2016 Election Special” brought the Monday 10 p.m. time period back to life with a 5.7/10. One week earlier, freshman drama “Timeless” scored a 3.4/ 6 in the time period.

Elsewhere, CBS remains on the downside with its combination of 8-10 p.m. sitcoms “Kevin Can Wait” (#3: 4.7/ 7), “Man with a Plan” (#3: 3.9/ 6), “2 Broke Girls” (#3: 3.6/ 5) and “The Odd Couple” (#3: 3.3/ 5) and relocated “Scorpion” (#2: 4.5/ 7) dropping, on average, by 25 percent year to year.

Fox could not compete with its drama pairing of “Gotham” and “Lucifer” from 8-10 p.m., each with a 2.5/ 4 in the household overnights. But the positive for The CW remains “Supergirl” with a 1.8/ 3 at 8 p.m. (#5), which was more than double the 0.8/ 1 for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” on the year-ago evening (0.8/ 1 on 11/09/15). Lead-out “Jane the Virgin,” however, slipped by 56 percent with a 0.8/ 1 at 9 p.m.

      • Here’s a novel thought for Channing Dungey:

        Slash the big salaries of your “top” producers and use the money to make less expensive shows. Maybe since they won’t have money to splash they’ll have to have good writing and good acting and who knws? Maybe people will like that…
