ABC special “Sesame Street: 50 Years of Sunny Days” was left at the Nielsen starting gate, based on he fast affiliate ratings, with just 2.26 million viewers (#4) and a 0.4 rating/3 share in adults 18-49 (#3t) from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, NBC’s “The Voice” nearly tripled the size of the “Sesame Street” offering with 6.61 million viewers (and a 0.8/ 5 in the demo). But tops in the 8 p.m. hour in adults 18-49 was Fox drama “9-1-1” with a 0.9/ 7 (and 5.65 million viewers).
Compatible remained the observation for lead-out “9-1-1: Lone Star”, which scored 4.83 million viewers and a 0.7/ 5 in the demo — second in both categories — at 9 p.m.
Elsewhere, just renewed CBS drama “Bull” did not necessarily earn its pickup stripes, with 4.59 million viewers (#1) and a 0.5/ 3 in adults 18-49 at 10 p.m. Both competing dramas — ABC’s “The Good Doctor” (Viewers: #2, 3.67; A18-49: #1, 0.5/ 3) and NBC’s “Debris” (Viewers: #3, 2.72 million; A18-49: #3, 0.4/ 3) — were at typical fast affiliate levels. Chances of a second season for “Debris” are slim to none.
Earlier in the evening on the Eye net was its 8-10 p.m. ET combination of sitcoms “The Neighborhood” (Viewers: #3, 4.74 million; A18-49: #3, 0.6/ 4) and “Bob Hearts Abishola” (Viewers: #3, 4.49 million; A18-49: #3, 0.5/ 3) and legal drama “All Rise” (Viewers: #3, 3.43 million; A18-49: #3t, 0.4/ 2). Nothing unusual to report here. And The CW featured dramas “All American” (Viewers: #5, 660,000; A18-49: #5, 0.2/ 2 at 8 p.m.) and “Black Lightning” (Viewers: #5, 414,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 9 p.m.). Not much you can say about either.
