The finale of “The Bachelorette” scored its best ratings of the season en route to a good-sized ratings win Monday night.
The three-hour finale averaged a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.47 million viewers, season highs in both measures. (It also gave “Jimmy Kimmel Live” a ratings bump; see below.) “The Bachelorette” was down some, however, from last year’s finale, when the last episode and “After the Final Rose” averaged 2.4 and 8.4 million viewers.
“American Ninja Warrior” (1.5) improved by a tenth of a point vs. last week for NBC, while “Midnight, Texas” held steady at 0.8. A two-hour “So You Think You Can Dance” came in at 0.7 on FOX, even with last week. “Hooten & the Lady” (0.2) was also steady for The CW.

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.
