Ryan Hardy jumped back into violent action on The Following Season 3 Episode 1 last night, as the return installment of this Fox drama scored a 1.6 rating among 18-49-year olds and was viewed by 4.8 million people.

That’s about a 20 percent decrease from the Season 2 opener.

Elsewhere on Fox last night, Gotham Season 1 Episode 18 fell to 6.1 million total viewers, a drop off of six percent.

And elsewhere around the dial...

  • The Bachelor (8.1 million/2.4 rating) slipped 10 percent and two tenths from last week, but was up a tad from last year's Women Tell All Special.
  • Mike & Molly (9.5 million/2.2) increased by 7 percent and two tenths. It was Monday’s top-rated, most-watched scripted program.
  • The Voice ( 14.3 million/3.8) decreased a bit among young adults, while The Night Shift ( 6.3 million/1.4) inched up overall.
