Monday TV Ratings 3/21/22: American Song Contest Flops, 9-1-1 Returns Lower, American Idol Takes Second Place (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: NBC's 'American Song Contest' (0.49) failed to make much of an impression for its series premiere and found itself in a distant fourth-place in the 8PM timeslot. To make matters worse, 'The Endgame' (0.27, -0.06) lost six-hundredths and was dead-last at 10. On ABC, the first Monday edition of 'American Idol' (0.73) was eight-hundredths higher than Sunday's episode (0.65) but failed to top the night. Veteran drama 'The Good Doctor' (0.38, -0.06) tied its series low in the 10PM hour. Fox's '9-1-1' (0.78, -0.06) fell by six-hundredths for its spring premiere, but '9-1-1: Lone Star' (0.57, +0.02) picked up two-hundredths in its move to the 9PM slot. 'The Neighborhood' (0.63, -0.01) and 'NCIS' (0.55, -0.01) lost a hundredth apiece as 'Bob Hearts Abisohla' (0.51, -0.09) dealt with a much steeper decline. At 10, 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.52, +0.06) climbed to its highest rating without a football lead-in. 'All American' (0.17) and 'All American: Homecoming' (0.13) were stable on the CW. 

Finals Update: '9-1-1' (+0.1), 'American Song Contest' (+0.1), '9-1-1: Lone Star' (+0.1), and 'NCIS' (+0.1) adjusted up.
