Station 19's debut in the 9 o'clock spot scored a 1.3 in adults 18-49 and just under 7 million viewers, even in the demo and down a little in viewers versus last week. How to Get Away With Murder was steady at 0.6 in adults 18-49 and 3.05 million viewers.

SVU's 4.02 million viewers tops its previous high of 3.84 million for the season premiere. It drew a 0.7 in adults 18-49, up 0.1 from a week ago. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (0.6 in 18-49, 2.21 million viewers) and Will & Grace (0.6, 2.46 million) were even with last week, and Indebted (0.4, 1.57 million) ticked up.

Young Sheldon had its second-largest total audience of the season (9.32 million viewers) on CBS, along with a 1.0 in the 18-49 demo. The lead-in helped Man With a Plan (6.57 million, 0.7) rise in viewers versus last week. Mom (7.12 million, 0.8) also had its second-biggest viewer haul of 2019-20, and Broke (5.58 million, 0.7) padded its audience some as well. Tommy (5.2 million, 0.5) held steady.
