CBS also premiered the multi-cam comedy “Living Biblically” at 9:30, which drew a soft 0.8 and 5 million viewers, in line with what “9JKL” averaged in the same time slot.

On ABC, “The Bachelor” (1.8, 6.5 million) was up significantly from Sunday’s episode and up slightly from last Monday’s episode in both measures. “The Good Doctor” followed at 10.

For CBS, “Kevin Can Wait” (1.0, 6 million) hit a series low, while “Man with a Plan” (1.0, 5.9 million) was mostly steady with its last original episode. “Living Biblically” followed at 9:30, with “Scorpion” (0.8, 5 million) down slightly in total viewers at 10.

On The CW, “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.4, 1.5 million) was steady, while the season premiere of “iZombie” (0.3, 1 million) opened down by over 20 percent in the demo compared to last season.

NBC came of The Olympics again as the top network of the night with a 2.3 rating and 10.1 million viewers. ABC was second with a 1.6 and 6.9 million. CBS was third with a 0.9 and 5.3 million. Fox was fourth with a 0.8 and 3.5 million. The CW averaged a 0.4 and 1.3 million.
