Total Viewers: 
Fox: 4.61 million, CBS: 3.58, ABC: 2.82, NBC: 2.71, CW: 313,000

Adults 18-49:
Fox: 0.6 rating/5 share, ABC: 0.5/ 4, NBC: 0.4/ 3, CBS: 0.3/ 3, CW: 0.1/ 0

Led by “9-1-1: Lone Star” (Viewers: #1 for the night: 5.71 million; A18-49: #2, 0.7 rating/6 share at 8 p.m.), Fox was the network to beat on this final Monday of January. It led into freshman drama “The Cleaning Lady”, which finished second in the Monday 9 p.m. ET hour with 3.44 million viewers and a 0.5/ 4 in the demo. My prediction is we will see a second season of “The Cleaning Lady.”

On ABC, the typical romantic dramatics on ABC’s “The Bachelor” topped the night in adults 18-49, with an average 0.7/ 5 from 8-10 p.m. But the tally in total viewers, 3.36 million (#3), pales to its heyday. “The Bachelor” led into week two of drama “Promised Land”, which dipped to 1.73 million viewers (#3) and a mere 0.2/ 2 in adults 18-49 (#2) at 10 p.m.

In the specials department was “Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl” at a time period-winning 4.14 million viewers and a 0.5/ 4 in adults 18-49 at 10 p.m. Earlier in the evening on NBC was two more episodes of sophomore sitcom “Kenan” (Viewers: #4, avg. 1.69 million; A18-49: #4, 0.2/ 2 from 8-10 p.m.), which seems like a burn-off maneuver, and “That’s My Jam” (Viewers: #4, 2.29 million; A18-49: #3, 0.4/ 3 at 9 p.m.). Needless to say, NBC is in need of revamping the entire night.

Elsewhere, The CW featured docuseries “March”, which at 310,000 viewers (#5) and a 0.1/ 0 in the demo (#5) barely resonated. And CBS was in all repeats.
