NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” came in second in Monday night’s 8 p.m. time slot this week, with the same 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 it had scored last week, although, it is looking like it could adjust up in the finals later today. It was also the most-watched broadcast of the night with 5.16 million viewers.
On ABC, “Bachelor in Paradise” maintained the same 1.3 it had scored last Monday, beating “Ninja Warrior” head-to-head in the demo. “The Proposal” was steady with the same 0.6 preliminary as last week, but will likely adjust down again in the finals.
CBS’ “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live in Liverpool” special raked in a 0.6 on the network with 4.30 million viewers, making it the most-watched “Carpool Karaoke” special to date. Meanwhile, “Salvation” (0.3) and “Elementary” (0.4) were both steady with their previous episodes as well.
“So You Think You Can Dance?” is currently sitting at a 0.5 in the demo, down a tenth from the 0.6 it had scored a week ago, but it could adjust back up in the finals later today. Elsewhere, the CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” also ticked down from a 0.4 to a 0.3, while “Whose Line is it Anyway?” posted the same 0.4 preliminary as it did last week. Whether or not that 0.4 will hold in the finals, though, will have to wait to be seen.
ABC won the network race for the night with a 1.0 overall rating in the adults 18-49 demo, followed by NBC (0.9) in second and FOX (0.5) in third. CBS (0.4) and the CW (0.4) tied for fourth. In total viewers, NBC placed first with 4.48 million.

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.
