NBC’s new drama “Manifest” got off to an impressive start.

Monday’s series premiere built on its “The Voice” lead-in in adults 18-49 and overall viewership. It also handily won its timeslot (among major network programming), while ranking as the night’s #2 scripted show (below only “The Big Bang Theory”).

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, “Manifest” drew a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 10.31 million overall viewers.

The numbers top the 2.0 rating and 9.57 million viewer mark drawn by “The Voice” from 8-10PM.

The closest broadcast network competition in the 10PM hour came from ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” which drew a 1.4 rating and 7.78 million viewers (the numbers are subject to notable revision due to football pre-emptions).
