TV Ratings: ‘Scorpion,’ ‘Bachelor’ pace Monday split, ‘Virgin’ tops ‘Originals’

Fast National ratings for Monday, February 9, 2015.

“Scorpion” was Monday's top show overall, leading CBS to an easy overall victory, while “The Bachelor” continued its late-season rise and lifted ABC to victory among young viewers.

There were some interesting blips on the Monday radar, including “Jane the Virgin” improving on its “The Originals” lead-in in most measures for The CW.

Monday also saw a rather huge dip for NBC's “Celebrity Apprentice,” both for the hour filler special and the actual episode.

Other declining shows included “Gotham,” “Sleepy Hollow” and both CBS 8 p.m. comedies.

On to the numbers…

Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.3 rating for Monday night, holding off the 2.0 rating for CBS in the key demographic. FOX was third with a 1.5 key demo rating, followed by NBC's 1.2 key demo rating in fourth. The CW averaged a 0.6 key demo rating for Monday.

Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 10.27 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/10 share to win Monday primetime. ABC was second with 8.22 million viewers and a 5.4/9. There was a big drop to FOX's 2.9/5 and 4.76 million viewers and NBC's 4.48 million viewers and 3.0/5. The CW averaged a 0.9/1 and 1.28 million viewers for Monday.
