The season finale of NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” was Monday night’s most-watched broadcast with 5.63 million viewers, and tied its previous season high in adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating. It was the show’s highest-rated episode since June.
FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance?” closed out its own season in steady fashion, ticking up one-tenth from the 0.5 it had scored a week ago to a 0.6 this week – tying its season average.
On CBS, “Salvation” rose a tenth to a 0.4 for the first time since July, while “Elementary” took a small hit, falling back down from its previous 0.5 to a 0.4. The network’s annual fall preview special posted a 0.7 as well.
Meanwhile, ABC and the CW’s numbers were inflated last night, due to major-market NFL pre-emptions, which means the numbers for both networks will likely adjust down in the finals later today. So pending updates, ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” is sitting at a current season high 1.4, up three-tenths from its 1.1 last Monday. The CW aired a night of repeats.

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.
