On ABC, “The Bachelor” (1.8, 6.3 million) was even and was the top-rated show of the night. “The Good Doctor” (1.7, 9.5 million) was even and was the most-watched show of the night.

On CBS, “Kevin Can Wait” (1.3, 7.3 million), “Man With a Plan” (1.2, 6.6 million), and “Superior Donuts” (1.0, 5.7 million) were even. “9JKL” (0.8, 4.7 million) and “Scorpion” (0.8, 5.2 million) were both down in the demo.

For NBC, “The Wall” (1.2, 5.7 million) was even, while “Better Late Than Never” (0.9, 4.8 million) and “The Brave” (0.6, 3.4 million) were down in both measures.

On The CW, “Supergirl” (0.5, 2 million) was down in the demo, while “Valor” (0.2, 1.1 million) was even.

ABC won the night with a 1.7 and 7.4 million viewers. CBS and Fox tied for second in the demo with a 1.0. CBS was second in total viewers with 5.8 million. Fox was fourth in viewers with 4.2 million. NBC was fourth in the demo with a 0.9 but third in total viewers with 4.7 million. The CW averaged a 0.3 and 1.5 million viewers.
