Part 2 of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” delivered 1.69 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, right on par with the fast nationals for Sunday’s crossover kickoff (which eventually adjusted up in finals to a 0.7 rating) and giving The CW’s Monday leadoff slot its best numbers in a year (since Arrow‘s “Elseworlds” installment, which did 2.1 mil and a 0.8).
Technically a Batwoman episode, Part 2 also marked the freshman superhero series’ biggest audience since its premiere as well as a high in the demo. TVLine readers gave the episode an average grade of “B+” (versus Part 1’s “A-“).
Leading out of that, Black Lightning‘s “Crisis”-themed fall finale (903K/0.3) drew its best audience since Feb. 11 while matching its season high in the demo.
Elsewhere on Monday:
NBC | The Voice (8.2 mil/1.1) was steady week-to-week and dominated Monday in both measures. Making It (2.6 mil/0.5) matched its week-ago season premiere.
CBS | The Neighborhood (6.1 mil/0.9) rose to hit and match its second best numbers of the season, Bob Hearts Abishola (6 mil/0.7) was steady, and All Rise (5.2 mil/0.5) dipped a tenth to mark a demo low.
FOX | Beat Shazam (2 mil/0.5) was down a tick from its Season 3 average, while the second batch of The Moodys (1.26 mil/0.3) dropped more than half of its premiere numbers.
ABC | Pending adjustment due to NFL preemption, The Great Christmas Light Fight (4.6 mil/0.9) is up from its season opener.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
