‘Lucifer’ Ratings Off In Return; ‘Taken’ Steady In Finale; ‘Kevin’ Ticks Up

Michael Courtney/Fox

Just like its Monday companion Gotham last week, Fox’s Lucifer returned from a three-month break down 0.2 in the fast national 18-49 ratings from its most recent original. Airing against TNT’s NBA playoffs coverage, the already-renewed Lucifer drew a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and 3.4 million total viewers (Live+same day). Its lead-in, Gotham (1.0, 2.9 million) was even after being adjusted up a tenth in the demo last Monday from a 0.9 in the fast nationals.

On CBS, the King of Queens reunion of Kevin James and Leah Remini gave Kevin Can Wait (1.2, 6.2 million) a small boost, up a tenth in 18-49 and +6% in viewers from the last original two weeks ago. But, in the fast nationals, fellow Monday CBS comedies Man With a Plan (0.9, 5.3 million) and Superior Donuts (0.9, 5.2 million) each dipped a tenth in the return from a short hiatus before both being adjusted up 0.1 in the finals to end up flat at a 1.0 rating. Bubble freshman The Great Indoors (0.8, 4.1 million) once again was underwhelming, posting a second series low in its second test outing on Monday, likely sealing its fate. With a weaker lead-in, Scorpion (1.0, 6.9 million) dipped a tenth to match its demo low before also getting an upward adjustment to 1.1 in the final L+SD ratings.

NBC’s The Voice (1.7, 8.8 million) was down 0.2 from last week, though it has a shot at an upward adjustment, which it did get, inching up to a 1.8 in the finals. The singing competition again was the top program of the night in the demo. Taken (0.8, 4.5 million), which has been hopeful for a renewal, held steady, with its season finale even week-to-week in the demo.

ABC ‘s Dancing with the Stars (1.6, 10.1 million) also held steady, while Quantico (0.6, 2.9 million) again posted a 0.6 demo fast national, facing another possible downward adjustment to a 0.5 as was the case the last couple of weeks. UPDATE: Quantico held on at 0.6 this time.

The CW’s Supergirl (0.5, 1.73 million) and Jane the Virgin (0.2, 810,000) both were flat.
