On Monday night, the most sturdy franchise on TV had another great night for ABC. The Bachelor was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a season high. Broadcast TV keeps declining and The Bachelor just keeps on ticking. At 10pm, Quantico was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. On CBS, Kevin Can Wait was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Man with a Plan was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Superior Donuts was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. After a couple solid weeks, this was a weaker showing but I still feel pretty good about its chances. At 9:30pm, 2 Broke Girls was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Scorpion ended the night also down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

NBC aired a fairly young-skewing American Ninja Warrior special at 8pm ahead of next week's return of The Voice. It was followed by the season finale of Timeless, which was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It recovered some from its ugly 0.6 demo a couple weeks ago but I don't think it recovered enough to get a renewal. I wouldn't completely count it out yet though. It was another rough night for the new FOX lineup. 24: Legacy was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while APB was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in th edemo to a very weak 0.8. I get why FOX wanted to try this new lineup but it's already weaker than the Gotham/Lucifer combo. Finally on the CW, Supergirl was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Jane the Virgin was even.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Bachelor (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: APB (FOX)
