Monday TV Ratings 10/12/20: One Day At A Time Low, Dancing with the Stars and Big Brother Top MLB (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The Fox network let out a big sigh of relief as they were allowed to rid themselves of their failing Monday dramas, at least for one week. Instead of 'LA's Finest' and 'Filthy Rich', Fox aired game 1 of the National League Championship Series (0.8) and got a number several tenths higher than their meager dramas. But the Braves v. Dodgers baseball game still fell a tenth short of a steady 'Dancing with the Stars' (0.9) on ABC. 'Dancing' led into an increasingly underwhelming 'Emergency Call' (0.4). The new drama shed a tenth from last week, now two-tenths below its premiere.  

CBS had an even 'Big Brother' (0.9) and the broadcast debut of Pop TV's 'One Day At a Time' reboot (0.3/0.3). While 'One Day' was obviously above the 0.1s it would garner in its Pop home, it looks a lot worse here given it lost nearly 70% of its 'Brother' lead-in. Even if these are just glorified repeats, this is still a pretty disheartening start for the sitcom. A steady 'Manhunt: Deadly Games' (0.2) closed things out for the network. NBC was on the rise as 'American Ninja Warrior' (0.6) gained two-tenths and 'Dateline' (0.5) inched up. The CW had a steady 'Whose Line' (0.2/0.2) and an up 'Penn & Teller' (0.2).

Finals Update: Fox's MLB game (1.2, +0.4) adjusted up by four-tenths, becoming the night's top broadcast. 'Big Brother' (1.0, +0.1) adjusted up on CBS while NBCs 'Dateline' (0.4, -0.1) adjusted down.
