Fast Affiliate Ratings

Total Viewers: 
Fox: 4.05 million, CBS: 3.29, ABC: 2.55, NBC: 1.67, CW: 385,000

Adults 18-49:
ABC and Fox: 0.5 rating/3 share each, CBS and NBC: 0.3/ 2 each, CW: 0.1/ 1

The fast affiliate results for this second Monday of January are particularly uneventful. “9-1-1: Lone Star” was the most-watched show of the evening, with 4.86 million viewers (and a 0.6 rating/3 share in adults 18-49). Tops for the night in the demo was ABC’s “The Bachelor” with a 0.7/ 4 in the Monday 8-10 p.m. ET block. But 3.07 million viewers is a noticeable drop from its last edition.

“The Bachelor” led into an encore telecast of the first episode of “Judge Steve Harvey” at 10 p.m. And “9-1-1: Lone Star” led into week two of Fox drama “The Cleaning Lady”, which had decent retention with 3.24 million viewers (#2) and a 0.4/ 2 in adults 18-49 (#2t) at 9 p.m.

On NBC, two additional episodes of its laugh-challenged sitcom “Kenan” (which seems like a burn-off programming maneuver) opened with an average 1.64 million viewers ($4) and a 0.3/ 2 in the demo (#3t) in the 8 p.m. hour. And that set the stage in what could be NBC’s lowest rated Monday with original programming historically. Take a look at “That’s My Jam” and drama “Ordinary Joe” from 9-11 p.m.

9:00 p.m. – “That’s My Jam”
Viewers: 1.94 million (#4), A18-49: 0.4/ 2 (#3t)

10:00 p.m. – “Ordinary Joe”
Viewers: 1.43 million (#3), A18-49: 0.2/ 1 (#1t)

Elsewhere, CBS and The CW were in repeats.
