Ratings Breakdown:
A night of all repeats on CBS — two episodes of “The Big Bang Theory” (#1: avg. 5.4 rating/8 share from 8-9 p.m.), “Scorpion” (#2: 4.6/ 7) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#1: 4/.6/ 7) – was enough for CBS to still reign supreme in the household overnights. But two hours of “The Bachelor” on ABC (5.0/ 7 from 8-10 p.m.: down seven percent from one week earlier) should be more than enough to ABC to take the night in adults 18-49 (and all the key demos). Expect a low-rating in adults 18-49 for “The Bachelor.”

“Bachelor Live” at 10 p.m., which is scheduled in the hour for two more weeks, finished second with a 2.8/ 4.

On NBC, week two of comedies “Superstore” (#3: 3.6/ 6) and “Telenovela (#3: 2.6/ 4) in the 8 p.m. hour dropped by 10 percent and 16 percent, respectively, from one week earlier. One year earlier, “Celebrity Apprentice” scored a 4.5/ 7 in this time period. Anticipate in the vicinity of a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49 for “Superstore,” which is a very livable performance. “Telenovela” could be more like a 1.1 or a 1.2.

Out of the two NBC comedies was “The Biggest Loser,” which at a 2.3/ 4 from 9-11 p.m. is well below any prior season.

Elsewhere, Fox populated this second Monday in January with back-to-back repeats of “MasterChef Junior” at a 1.6/ 2 from 8-10 p.m. And The CW aired repeats of “Whose Line is it Anyway?” (#5: 0.9/ 1 from 8-9 p.m.) and “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (1.0/ 1).
