It was another dominant night in the Monday primetime ratings for “The Bachelorette.”
ABC easily held onto the night’s no. 1 spot, with part 1 of “The Bachelorette” season finale rising to a season high 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.15 million viewers, up from the 1.7 and 6.6 million viewers its “Men Tell All” special scored last Monday.
“The Bachelorette” not only hit season highs in both adults 18-49 and in total viewers though, but also scored higher than its 2018 season finale (1.8, 6.71 million) – making it the show’s highest-rated and most-watched broadcast since its 2017 season finale.
At 10 p.m., “Grand Hotel” benefitted from its strong “Bachelorette” lead-in, ticking up from its last episode’s 0.5 to a 0.7 – tying its current season high in the 18-49 demo.
Elsewhere, NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” remained the night’s no. 2 broadcast with the same 0.8 rating that it scored last week. “Dateline” (0.6) held similarly steady week-to-week, as did “Love Island” (0.4), which was CBS’ only original broadcast of the night.
On FOX, “Beat Shazam” fell from its previous 0.6 to a series low 0.5, while “So You Think You Can Dance” stayed even with another 0.4. The CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (0.2) and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” (0.2) matched their ratings from a week ago as well.

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.
