Pending updates, ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” was the highest-rated broadcast Monday night, despite falling one-tenth from the 1.3 it had scored a week ago to a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49. The season finale of “The Proposal” closed out the night for the network, steady with the 0.5 final of its previous episode.
“Bachelor in Paradise” just barely beat NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” head-to-head, which rose one-tenth from a 1.0 to a 1.1 average throughout the 8-10 p.m. hours, but which could adjust up in the finals later today. “Ninja Warrior” did beat its competition, though, as the night’s most-watched broadcast (5.81 million viewers), and hit a new season-high in the total viewers measure.
CBS’ “Elementary” also managed to climb up one-tenth from the 0.4 it had been maintaining in recent weeks to a 0.5 this time around, while “Salvation” (0.3) held steady yet again.
After taking a minor hit last week, FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance?” looks to have ticked back up one-tenth to a 0.6 this week. On the CW, both “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (0.3) and “Whose Line is it Anyway?” (0.3) were even with their previous episodes.
NBC (1.0) and ABC (1.0) tied for the no. 1 spot of the night in the 18-49 demo, with the former beating the other in total viewers (4.92 million vs 3.87 million). FOX came in second with a 0.6, followed by CBS (0.5) and the CW (0.3).

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.
