Monday TV Ratings 4/13/20: The Baker and The Beauty Premieres Low, Tiger King Special and Songland Solid (UPDATED)

The Bachelor franchise has long dominated the broadcast television landscape but the series premiere of the juggernaut's latest incarnation 'Listen To Your Heart' (0.7) proved the brand may not be as invincible as it previously seemed. This debut couldn't even hold a candle to the mothership's March finale (2.4) and was still nearly 50% below its winter 2020 low point (1.3). ABC had another disastrous series premiere after that with new drama 'The Baker and the Beauty' (0.5). While it had very little lead-in assistance, this is far from a solid starting point. 

NBC had much better luck with their premiere of the second season of 'Songland' (0.9). While it lost almost half of its 'The Voice' (1.6) lead-in, this number is a good bit above its summer 2019 season one finale (0.8) and only two ticks behind its season one premiere (1.1).

Fox's '9-1-1' (1.5) returned from a two-week break and soared to its highest rating since October 2019, rising two-tenths from its last outing. It led into a TMZ special centering on Netflix phenomenon 'Tiger King' (1.1), the latter was markedly stronger than how a typical episode of 'Prodigal Son' would perform in the slot. 

CBS had stable comedies with 'The Neighborhood' (1.0) and 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.8) remaining at high-end levels. 9pm drama 'All Rise' (0.6) lost a tenth but 'Bull' (0.7) held steady at 10.

The CW was even across the board with 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.2/0.2) and 'Roswell, New Mexico' (0.1).

Finals Update: Listen To Your Heart (+0.1) adjusted up. Tiger King - What Really Went Down? (-0.1) and Songland (-0.1) adjusted down.
