The Big 4 networks had their schedules thrown into disarray by President Trump’s Supreme Court pick last night. The announcement ran for about 21 minutes – leading to some shows overrunning their respective time slots – which means that numbers for the 9-10 p.m. slot are subject to change in the finals.
As of right now, “The Bachelorette” is leading again with a peak 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.82 million viewers, back up two-tenths from its previous 1.2. Whether or not the show’s average will be the same in the finals later today will have to wait to be seen.
The same can be said for NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior,” which scored a peak 1.0 and 4.92 million viewers throughout the night.
As for shows untouched by the SCOTUS news coverage, though, FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” returned from a week off, up one-tenth from its previous 0.6 to a 0.7. On The CW, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” were both steady at 0.3.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.1/5||0.8/4||0.5/2||0.4/2||0.3/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||4.87||4.45||2.42||3.15||1.19|

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.
