-Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening:
Fox: +15, NBC: +12, ABC: + 5, CBS: + 2, CW: no change

Ratings Breakdown:
ABC inched past CBS for overnight dominance on this final Monday in January, with a 0.1 household rating point advantage. “The Bachelor” scored a typical 4.6 rating/8 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m., which was just six percent below the 4.9/8 on the year-ago evening. And that led into a repeat of “The Good Doctor” at a 3.5/ 6 (#2) at 10 p.m., which trailed competing “Scorpion” on CBS (#1: 3.9/ 7) by 10 percent.

There were two series finales last night: NBC’s “The Brave” and “Valor” on The CW. Although “The Brave” is not officially canceled yet, a third-place 2.5/ 5 in the 10 p.m. hour pretty much seals its fate. And “Valor” earned its cancellation stripes with a 0.7/ 1 (#5) in the 9 p.m. hour, which was 56 percent below lead-in “Supergirl” (#5: 1.6/ 2 at 8 p.m.).

On CBS, sophomore sitcom “Man With a Plan” (#2: 4.5/ 7 at 8:30 p.m.) continues to fit particularly well out of “Kevin Can Wait” (#1t: 4.9/ 8), with both very likely to return next season. Also sophomore “Superior Donuts” followed on the Eye net with a 3.9/ 6 (#2) in the 9 p.m. half-hour, which led into a 3.4/ 6 (#3) for freshman “9JKL” at 9:30 p.m. With only 16 episodes ordered, next week will likely be the series-finale for “9JKL.”

Elsewhere, recent Fox medical drama “The Resident” (#3: 3.5/ 6 at 9 p.m.) remained very positive, with overnight growth out of “Lucifer” (#4: 2.7/ 4 at 8 p.m.) of 30 percent. One year earlier, “Lucifer” scored a 2.8/ 4 in the Monday 9 p.m. hour.

NBC had nothing unusual to report from 8-10 p.m., meanwhile, with the pairing of game show “The Wall” (#3: 3.4/ 5 at 8 p.m.) and comedy/reality series “Better Late Than Never” (#4: 2.9/ 5 at 9 p.m.).

    • I stopped watching after episode 2. Maybe I’ll check it out on CBS access again before they remove it. I had found Linda Lavin’s character to be especially grating and wished they would tweak it a bit to make her funny instead of grating. (Reminded me of Margo Martindale’s annoying character on The Millers)

      • I agree absolutely about Lavin’s character and, funny you should mention it, she also reminded me of that other character. For some reason, she started being funny for me. You may not find it that way, though. Martindale’s character never did. She was SO annoying and grating.
