Monday TV Ratings 9/28/20: Emergency Call Starts Solidly Behind Stable Dancing with the Stars, Filthy Rich and Manhunt Get Uglier, Final Stanley Cup Game Rises (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The 'Dancing with the Stars' resurgence showed no sign of slowing down in week 3 as the longtime reality series notched a healthy 1.1 A18-49 rating, steady with last week and far ahead of all other offerings. In comparison, the third episode of 'Dancing' in fall 2019 could only manage a 0.8 rating. The good will transitioned nicely into the 10pm hour as the series premiere of new drama 'Emergency Call' (0.7) posted a very solid number for its debut. Considering how low Nielsen ratings have fallen, it's safe to say that ABC will be quite happy with its performance.

But while the alphabet network had a night of prosperity, there was little to write home about over on Fox. New drama 'LA's Finest' (0.4) lost a tenth from last week's premiere while 'Filthy Rich' (0.3) shed two-tenths from a barely passable start. Over on NBC, game six of the Stanley Cup (0.8) posted a hefty result but couldn't quite come close to the heights of 'Dancing'. CBS had a duo of comedy repeats (0.4/0.4), a stable 'Love Island' (0.4), and a declining 'Manhunt: Deadly Games' (0.2). The CW had another 'iHeartRadio Music Festival' (0.2) that was a notch above yesterday's 0.1.

Finals Update: Emergency Call (-0.1) adjusted down.
