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.

For ABC, “The Middle” (1.2, 5.2 million) was even. After a rerun of “Black-ish” and “Modern Family,” “Kevin Probably Saves the World” (0.5, 2.1 million) was up in both measures.

On Fox, “Lethal Weapon” (1.0, 4.1 million) held steady while “LA to Vegas” (0.7, 2.4 million) and “The Mick” (0.6, 1.9 million) dipped in the demo.

For The CW, “The Flash” (0.7, 2.1 million) is currently tied with its series low. “Black Lightning” (0.5, 1.6 million) was down slightly in total viewers.
