Well, The masked singer and Survivor first tied for victory in the standings for adults aged 18-49 (1.0), although both fell from their finals the previous season. (Both also lost viewers, with Survivor coming fourth behind the three Chicagos in this figure.)
It was Chicago fire which was watched by the most viewers (7 million), followed by Mean (6.54 million) and PD (6.35 million). While the first two lost a few viewers from last season’s finals, PD was about equal.
As for the ABC comedies, The Goldbergs and Domestical economy won a few viewers from last season’s finals, while the conners was about equal. However, compared to its last new live episode (in February 2020), the conners was down significantly both in number of viewers (3.37 million vs. 6.2) and rating (0.6 vs. 1.11) The network closed the evening with the return drama A million little things, which was down in viewership since the Season 3 finale (2.0 million vs. 2.5).
As for the new shows of the night, Alter ego increased to 2.85 million viewers and 3.07 million views The good years to restart.
