at .

It was a rough night for the broadcast networks. 

Most shows were down on Monday night. 

Prodigal Son, which recently scored a full-season order, slid to 3.6 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating.

The series is performing well with delayed viewing, but it could find itself in trouble if the live ratings continue to trickle down.

9-1-1, which aired before it, was also down, sliding to 6.4 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating. 

These are still solid ratings, and with the end of the tsunami storyline, the urgency to watch live probably waned for most viewers.

Over on NBC, Bluff City Law has sprung a leak out of The Voice. 

The freshman drama came down to 3.6 million viewers and a 0.5 rating, holding just 36% of the demo tally from The Voice (1.4 rating).

The show will probably not recieve a formal back order with these ratings. It is simply not holding up as well as it should be.

The CW's All American (0.7 million/0.2 rating) and Black Lightning (0.6 million/0.2 rating) each lost a tenth from their week-ago debut ratings. 

The Neighborhood (5.3 million/0.8 rating), Bob Hearts Abishola (4.9 million/0.7 rating), All Rise (5 million/0.6 rating), and Bull (5.7 million/0.6 rating) were all down in viewers, but steady in the demo. 

ABC's rotation of Dancing With the Stars (7.3 million/1.1 rating) and The Good Doctor (6.6 million/1.0 rating) are likely inflated due to NFL overrun.
