First-year doctor dramas continue to pass their physicals.

ABC has a Monday night breakout hit in The Good Doctor. Now Fox might have one, too, in The Resident, which followed up Sunday night’s post-football premiere by scoring again in what will be its regular slot.

The Resident won the 8 p.m. hour in both total D-FW viewers (235,029) and with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds (87,377). Good Doctor then again controlled the 9 p.m. Nielsens with 227,907 total viewers and 78,015 in the 18-to-49 age range.

From 7 to 8 p.m., CBS’ Kevin Can Wait won the first half-hour in total viewers with 185,175 before ABC’s now glaringly antiquated The Bachelor ran first from 7:30 to 8 p.m. with 156,686. The Bachelor had the 18-to-49 edge in both half-hours.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 won at 10 p.m. in total viewers while Fox4 ran first among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 as usual controlled the 6 a.m hour in both ratings measurements, and NBC5 enjoyed sweeps at 5 and 6 p.m.
