The season finale of “The Bachelorette” gave ABC another easy win in the Monday primetime ratings this week, with its best ratings of the season.
The show’s three-hour finale scored a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.68 million viewers, season highs in both measures. “The Bachelorette” was, however, down from the 2.1 and 7.57 million viewers that last year’s finale and “After the Final Rose” special had scored.
Elsewhere, NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” (1.0) was down a tenth from the 1.1 it had scored a week ago, though, it is looking like it could adjust up to a 1.1 in the finals later today. “Dateline” also ticked down one-tenth to a 0.7, while CBS’ “Elementary” (0.4) and “Salvation” (0.3) held steady yet again.
FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” maintained the same 0.6 it had scored last week. On the CW, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” fell from a 0.3 to a 0.2 this time around, while “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” was even with another 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.
