Free of the dead weight of The Mole, ABC swept away the competition Monday night with the finale of The Bachelorette and the follow-on Bachelorette: After the Final Rose averaging 9.64 million viewers and a 3.4 rating / 10 share for demo adults 18-49. CBS' reruns edged Fox's reruns for second place in viewers and both were in a dead heat for second in the demo. Those comedies are CBS's best demo block, no surprise they're going to try and add more next fall. As they have all summer, NBC's Monday reality shows disappointed in third place and the CW reruns continued safely hidden in their TV witness protection program.
