Ratings Breakdown:
ABC inched past NBC for Monday metered market household dominance by one-tenth of a rating point, but “The Voice” still had an advantage over the season-finale of ABC’s “The Bachelor.” “The Voice” averaged a 7.8 rating/12 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m., which was 15 percent above the sizeable 6.8/11 for competing “The Bachelor.” Comparably, “The Bachelor” was right on par with the 7.0/11 for the year-ago season-ender (7.0/11 on 3/9/15), and that translated into 9.68 million viewers and a 2.8 rating/9 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

Post show “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” dominated the 10 p.m. hour, with a 6.5/11. Comparably, that bested competing “NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS (5.6/ 9) and “Blindspot” on NBC (4.3/ 7) by 16 percent and 51 percent, respectively. “Blindspot,” unfortunately, is no the hit you are led to believe.

Earlier in the evening on CBS was “Supergirl” at a third-place 4.2/ 7 at 8 p.m. into “Scorpion” at a 5.8/ 9 at 9 p.m., which built by 38 percent.

Elsewhere, “Gotham” on Fox continues to lose to competing “Supergirl” on CBS, with a modest 2.9/ 5 at 8 p.m. Comparably, this was 31 percent below “Supergirl” and it led into a 2.7/ 4 for compatible “Lucifer” at 9 p.m.

The CW populated the night with encore telecasts of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (#5: 0.5/ 1) and “Jane the Virgin” (#5: 0.4/ 1).
