“The Bachelorette” recovered from its Memorial Day dip a week ago, to win the Monday primetime ratings this week.

The long-running ABC reality series led the night with a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.49 million viewers. That’s not only up from its 1.1 rating and 4.67 million viewer audience last week, but also marked new season highs in both measures for “The Bachelorette.” It was followed once again by a “Celebrity Family Feud” rerun, which rounded out the night for ABC with a solid 0.8.

NBC’s broadcast of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final came second in the night with a 1.4 average rating and 5 million viewers. It was down from both the 1.6 that the network’s Game 1 broadcast scored last week, and from last year’s Game 4 broadcast (1.6, 5.06 million viewers).

On FOX, “Beat Shazam” ticked back up from its 0.6 last Monday to a 0.7 this week, while the season premiere of “So You Think You Dance” grabbed a 0.7 with 2.7 million viewers at 9 p.m., even with its season premiere from a year ago.

Elsewhere, “The Code” was CBS’ only original broadcast of the night, and scored a 0.5 with 4.61 million viewers, down from its last episode’s 0.6. The rest of CBS’ primetime broadcasts were reruns, while the CW took the night off.

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.
