Monday TV Ratings 4/26/21: Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Special Weak, 9-1-1 Shows and CBS Comedies Slip (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC's highly-publicized 'Sesame Street' special (0.5) failed to bring in a large audience but was really only a tenth behind the week-ago installment of 'American Idol' (0.59). Despite having a smaller lead-in, 10pm drama 'The Good Doctor' (0.5) matched its last episode. On Fox, '9-1-1' (0.9) and '9-1-1: Lone Star' (0.7) lost two-tenths apiece, with both programs slipping to new lows. In spite of that, '9-1-1' was still the night's highest-rated offering. NBC's 'The Voice' (0.8) inched down as struggling drama 'Debris' (0.4) held even. 'The Neighborhood' (0.6) and 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.5) shed a tenth on CBS but 'Bull' (0.5) rose by a tenth for its 100th episode. 'All Rise' (0.4) was flat in the 9pm slot. The CW had stable helpings of 'All American' (0.2) and 'Black Lightning' (0.1).

Finals Update: 9-1-1 (+0.1) and Sesame Street: 50 Years of Sunny Days (+0.1) adjusted up.
