Without “The Proposal” on to cover the 10 p.m. hour, Monday night’s “Bachelor in Paradise” expanded to a 3-hour-long run time, and experienced a small slip in the ratings, but still remained the highest-rated broadcast of the night. Pending updates, the ABC series scored a 1.1 average rating in adults 18-49 – a new Monday night low for it so far this season, and was down one-tenth from what it had scored last Monday.
NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” landed just one-tenth below it with a 1.0 of its own, similarly one-tenth lower than its previous 1.1. “Ninja Warrior” was, however, the most-watched Monday night primetime broadcast yet again, raking in 4.80 million viewers, beating both “Bachelor in Paradise” and a “Mom” rerun on CBS, which are currently tied for second place with 4.18 million.
Meanwhile, it was a steady night for CBS, as “Elementary” maintained a 0.5 for the second week in a row and “Salvation” continued its 0.3 streak. The same could not be said for FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance?,” though, which fell a tenth week-to-week from a 0.6 to a 0.5.
On the CW, “Whose Line is it Anyway?” held steady with another 0.3, while “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (0.3) was down from the 0.4 final it had adjusted up to a week ago.
In the network race, ABC came out on top in both adults 18-49 and total viewers with “Bachelor in Paradise” giving it a 1.1 and 4.18 million. NBC is sitting second in both measures with a 0.8 and 4.04 million. CBS (0.5) and FOX (0.5) tied for third in the demo, while the CW (0.3) stayed in fifth.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.1/5||0.8/4||0.5/2||0.5/2||0.3/1|

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.
