Monday TV Ratings 3/22/21: American Idol Hits Low in Monday Premiere, March Madness Dominates (UPDATED)


Preliminary Analysis: ABC's 'American Idol' (0.7) and NBC's 'The Voice' (0.8) went head-to-head for the first time this year, and the results were not pretty. 'Idol' slipped to its lowest rating yet while 'The Voice' lost a whopping three-tenths from last week's episode. In the 10pm hour, 'The Good Doctor' (0.5) shed a tenth on the alphabet network as 'Debris' (0.4) held even on the peacock network. CBS remained on top, with another night of 'NCAA' coverage (1.5/0.9) outpacing the competition. On Fox, a repeat of '9-1-1' (0.4) led into a stable edition of 'America's Most Wanted' (0.4). The CW had an original 'Bulletproof' (0.1) and a 'Black Lightning' encore (0.1).

Finals Update: NCAA Tournament: USC v. KS (+0.2) adjusted up. NCAA Tournament: LSU v. MI (-0.1) adjusted down.
