ABC experienced several small improvements across the board Monday night.
“Bachelor in Paradise” led the night’s primetime ratings for the third week in a row with a 1.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 4.78 million viewers, up from the 1.2 and 4.33 million viewers it scored last Monday. Pending updates, that means last night’s episode is the show’s most-watched broadcast of the season so far, and ties it with its current season high among adults 18-49. At 10 p.m., “Grand Hotel” grabbed a 0.5, up one-tenth from its 0.4 final rating last week.
Elsewhere, the season finale of FOX’s “Beat Shazam” scored a 0.6 with 2.58 million viewers, steady with its overall performance this season. “So You Think You Can Dance” followed it with a 0.5, matching its episode from a week ago.
On NBC, it was a less steady night for “American Ninja Warrior,” which ticked down from its previous 0.9 to a 0.8. “Dateline” similarly fell from the 0.7 it scored last Monday to a 0.5 with 3.17 million viewers this time around.
The CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Whose Line is it Anyway?” returned from a week off, and scored the same 0.2 ratings as their last outings. The TV premiere of the CW Seed comedy, “I Ship It,” capped off the night for the network with a low 0.1 and 429,000 viewers.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
