NBC also topped Monday night this week thanks to the season premiere of “The Voice” and the series debut of “Good Girls.”

On CBS, “NCIS” (1.2, 12.3 million) returned down in both measures but was still the most-watched show of the night. “Bull” (1.1, 10.6 million) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9, 8.2 million) were even.
