via press note:

NBC is currently #1 for the night among the Big 4 in adults 18-49 with the #1 show of the night on those nets, “American Ninja Warrior.”  Note that NBC’s Detroit affiliate carried a high-rated fireworks special.
  • "American Ninja Warrior" (1.8/6 in adults 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall from 9-11 p.m. ET) is currently up +13% week to week in adults 18-49 (to a 1.8 rating from 1.6) and up +17% in total viewers (5.5 million vs. 4.7 million), pending updates.  The 1.8 is “Ninja’s” highest 18-49 rating since June 2 and the 5.453 million in total viewers is a season high for a regular “Ninja” and best since a special “USA vs. Japan” telecast on Jan. 13 (5.537 million).
  • In its second hour from 10-11, “Ninja” currently ranks #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in all key measures ahead of CBS’s “Under the Dome” recap and ABC’s “Mistresses” original.
  • The 1.8 rating for “American Ninja Warrior” in 18-49 is currently the #1 rating of the night among Big 4 primetime telecasts, pending updates, on a night that includes Fox’s “MasterChef” (1.7/6 from 8-9 p.m.) and “24: Live Another Day” (1.4/4 from 9-10) and ABC’s “Bachelorette” (1.5/5 from 8-10:01) and “Mistresses” (1.0/3 from 10:01-11).
  • An encore telecast of “Last Comic Standing” (1.0 rating, 4 share in adults 18-49, 3.5 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) is up +11% versus last week in both 18-49 (1.0 vs. 0.9) and total viewers (3.5 million vs. 3.2 million).
