The ratings for CBS’ Intelligence plummeted to idiotic numbers.

Making its time period premiere vs. NBC’s The Blacklist on Monday night, the Josh Holloway series fell 54 percent from last week’s preview episode to 6.1 million viewers and a slight 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. Some drop-off was expected given that the Intelligence preview on Tuesday was aided by a big NCIS lead-in, but sadly the new show is already at Hostages levels in this slot.

But Blacklist was seemingly wounded in the battle too. The NBC freshman hit returned down 22 percent from its previous episode back in December to mark a season low.

Meanwhile: Fox’s Sleepy Hollow returned steady, Almost Human was up a bit, ABC’s The Bachelor was down 19 percent from last week’s elevated premiere, CBS’ comedy block posted gains across the board. Full chart:
