*: Adjusted numbers; no half-hours available
(R): Rerun
(LY): The numbers are from last year's finale
Please note that last year's numbers are taken from the whole hour statistics, not the half-hours.

Last night, most of the normal line-up was back for most networks, excluding FOX and the CW. Nonetheless, FOX was airing an original special of their new competition show: Superhuman. It got a satisfying rating (for FOX and the limited marketing it got) of 1.2.

What's very surprising is that this special actually got the same numbers than reality series The Biggest Loser over at NBC. With a 1.2, This one is definitely not a hit anymore, now being an acceptable show that's kept there only because NBC has trouble getting great shows aside from the Chicago franchise and the beneficiary of The Voice lead-in. Although this might not be so true with Superstore keeping most of its ratings it got when aired after The Voice, only losing 0.3! Plus, it's even higher than the 1.6 the last half-hour got that night. Telenovela is also quite lucky, only losing a tenth and actually gaining four tenths when compared to the last half-hour that got a 0.9 that night.

It was Bachelor night on ABC and while it was a bit down from last year's finale, it still over 2, so it's safe. Very safe actually! The Bachelor Live was a bit deceiving, though, going fractionnal in the last half-hour.

The biggest network of the night, even though not when looking only at the ratings, was CBS. Everyone of their shows was up, including Supergirl, the one and only that dropped a complete point after its premiere. It's now back to very satisfying numbers with a 1.8. Scorpion also followed that trend, going up to a 2.2, a very impressive score for scripted TV. Not having The Voice to fight against might have helped a lot, adding to the absence of Gotham against Supergirl, which pretty much share the same audience. NCIS: Los Angeles, though in a less impressive way, was also up with a 1.6, compared to before-the-break 1.4.
