Monday, Oct. 24 saw one of the biggest events on TV as we feared for a character. How did the shows fare in the live TV ratings?

We knew last night was going to big for 911 fans. The end of the previous episode and the promo showed us that Karen Wilson was in trouble. Would Hen lose her wife? We got some answers before the hour was up, and we even found out what Hen had decided to do about med school and her work with the 118.

Meanwhile, Monday saw new episodes of NCISThe Cleaning Lady, Quantum Leap, and much more. The only shows we’re not focusing on in this post are the two unscripted shows. The Voice and Bachelor in Paradise aired new episodes.

911 down, Quantum Leap up in the live TV ratings

Despite it being a big episode, 911 dropped in the live ratings. It was down 4.7% in the demo, matching The Neighborhood, which was up. It was also down 1.3% in the total audience, dropping below The Neighborhood, which was also up in that metric. I think 911 is still safe, and so it The Neighborhood.

In that same hour, All American was down 23% in the demo, but it was up almost 30% in the total audience. It’s really hard to make a call on this series just yet with The CW’s change of ownership, but it does remain one of the most popular shows on the network, so it’s likely safe for now.

Bob Hearts Abishola was down 9% in the demo, dropping to a 0.4 rating. I’m on the fence about the renewal, but I think it should be safe. The total audience ticking up by 4.4% will hopefully help. It will depend on the delayed ratings on Paramount+.

The next hour of the night saw NCIS mized. The demo was up 8.7%, but that is still down from previous seasons. The audience fell by 3%, but it is still the most popular scripted show of the night. It’s actually the most popular show of the night overall, which helps keep it on the board for the time being.

The 9 p.m. ET/PT timeslot was a good one. The Cleaning Lady shot up by 11% in the demo and 13% in the total audience. This is a great sign for the series, and I think we’ll get a third season if things continue like this. Meanwhile, All American: Homecoming was steady in the demo and up a whopping 51% in the total audience, a very good sign for a renewal.

What about the final hour of the night? This was mixed. Quantum Leap continues to perform well for NBC in the timeslot. It was up 14% in the demo and almost 12% in the audience. The demo was the best of the timeslot, and while the audience was the lowest, it wasn’t that far behind The Good Doctor, which was down in the demo by almost 12% and up by just 3%.

NCIS: Hawaii didn’t fare as well. It was down 21% in the demo and down 3% in the audience. This timeslot is a tricky one. In fact, ABC, CBS, and NBC are all looking at getting rid of it. What does this mean for all the shows in this slot fight now? While I think Quantum Leap is safe, it’s questionable about Hawaii and The Good Doctor right now.
