ABC is basking in the primetime spotlight of the NFL as its coverage of the Los Angeles Rams-Arizona Cardinals game on Monday Night Football was the night’s top-rated program.

The Rams’ 30-23 victory earned a 1.5 demo rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 6.69 million viewers, per Nielsen fast affiliates. However, numbers are set to rise as they usually do with major live events, like sports. ABC’s coverage was significantly behind NBC’s Sunday Night Football coverage the previous night (4.0, 15.06M). 

Coming in second in the demo Monday was the latest episode of The Voice on NBC (0.7, 7.06M), the evening’s most-watched program among the broadcasters. Going up against both MNF and The Voice was Fox’s Gordon Ramsay’s Road Trip (0.3, 1.12M) and the CW’s All American (0.2, 700,000).

Monday’s numbers marked season highs for the CW drama in both demo rating and viewership. Last night’s episode was the most-watched since the previous season ender. 4400 (0.1, 390K) followed in the 9 p.m. hour.

NBC followed The Voice up with a double-episode preview of Justin Spitzer’s American Auto starring Ana Gasteyer, Jon Barinholtz, Harriet Dyer, Humphrey Ker, Michael B. Washington, Tye White and X Mayo. The new comedy averaged a 0.3 demo rating and 2.41 million viewers.

CBS was all repeats Monday.
