TV ratings: 'Alcatraz' holds up fairly well as FOX leads MondayAdd to Favorites | Alcatraz
"Alcatraz" stayed healthy Monday in its second week on FOX, retaining about 90 percent of the audience from its premiere last week and helping the network capture a ratings win for the evening.
"The Bachelor" and "Castle" were up in viewers for ABC (although the latter's 18-49 rating dipped), taking advantage of a repeat night on CBS. NBC, meanwhile, got decent numbers from its broadcast of a Republican presidential debate in Florida.
FOX scored a very narrow win in total viewers over ABC, averaging 8.84 million and a 5.3 rating/8 share in households to the Alphabet's 8.83 million and 5.8/9. CBS (7.7 million, 4.9/7) came in third. NBC took fourth with 6.9 million viewers and a 4.4/7. The CW currently stands at 1.6 million viewers and a 1.1/2, but that may change some because of a pre-emption in Chicago.
FOX posted a 3.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, beating ABC (2.5) by a somewhat wider margin than in total viewers. CBS, 2.2, finished third, followed by NBC, 1.7, and The CW, 0.7.
