CBS’s The Big Bang Theory as usual led all prime-time TV attractions in total viewers while ESPN’s Monday Night Football averaged the most advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.

Big Bang amassed 398,838 total D-FW viewers before the rest of CBS’ comedy lineup again fell off. The MNF game, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins, ranked second in total viewers (320,495) and topped all Monday night programming in 18-to-49-year-olds with 140,427.

At 9 p.m., ABC’s The Good Doctor continued to operate successfully by winning its slot among the Big Four broadcast networks with 220,785 total viewers. But it fell to a competitive third among 18-to-49-years behind NBC’s competing The Brave and Fox4’s local 9 p.m. newscast. CBS’ Scorpion, which used to have some ratings sting, ran last in both measurements.

Also, The CW’s 7 p.m. episode of Supergirl managed to fly higher with 18-to-49-year-olds than the first hour of ABC’s increasingly older-skewing Dancing with the Stars.

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

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

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. and NBC5 did likewise at 5 p.m. The 6 p.m. wreaths went to TEGNA8 in total viewers and the Peacock among 25-to-54-year-olds.
