at .

The first Tuesday of the 2022-23 TV season was filled with new and returning series.

The numbers are down across the board in a trend that is becoming all too familiar for the broadcast networks.

You can thank streaming and the endless possibilities available to viewers nowadays for that.

FBI Season 5 Episode 1 managed 6.5 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating -- down a tenth from last season's premiere, but on par with its May finale.

Monarch Season 1 Episode 2 came in at 1.7 million viewers and a 0.2 rating, placing a distant fourth in the 9 p.m. slot.

The Susan Sarandon-led Country Music drama got a football boost with its premiere earlier this month, and FOX revealed that the premiere had eclipsed 10 million viewers.
