Scoreboard FOX CBS ABC NBC CW
Total Viewers (million) 7.36 7.04 6.24 5.32 0.96
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.1/7 2.2/7 2.2/7 1.6/5 0.4/1

In an unusual night, Fox took the viewer win [7.36 million] with repeats of Bones and House, but didn't win the adults 18-49 demo. That's a reasonably unusual result in that Fox's demo typically outperforms its average viewership. Instead, CBS and ABC tied with a 2.2 rating /7 share for adults 18-49. ABC fielding two new Bachelorettes and The Mole, and CBS with its summer Monday line up of comedy and CSI:Miami reruns.

We only have half hourly data from last night as opposed to our typical show by show data, so it's hard to pick out the show winners and losers (unfortunately averaging things together often doesn't jibe with the official results), but it's clear that The Bachelorette would have carried the night for ABC if it were not put in such a hole by The Mole. ;)
