ABC maintained its usual dominance over the Monday primetime ratings this week.
“Bachelor in Paradise” remained the night’s no. 1 show with a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.26 million viewers, up from the 1.1 and 4.02 million viewer audience it scored a week ago. Live NFL preemptions on the network’s Houston and San Francisco/Oakland stations may result in “Bachelor in Paradise” adjusting down from those season high numbers in the finals later today, but it’ll likely still hold onto the night’s first place spot.
The season finale of “Grand Hotel” followed “Bachelor in Paradise” with a 0.6 and 2.8 million viewers, also up from its penultimate episode’s 0.4 and 2.24 million viewer audience last week, pending updates.
Elsewhere, NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” similarly ticked up from its previous 0.8 to a 0.9 this week, coming second in the night in both the adults 18-49 and total viewers (5.00 million) measures. Its lead-out, “Dateline,” also managed to rise from a 0.4 to a 0.7. However, NBC’s live NFL preemption in New Orleans may result in both shows adjusting down some in the finals.
At 8 p.m., a “Lip Sync to the Rescue” special posted a 0.5 with 3.55 million viewers for CBS. The network’s “Fall Preview Show” shed a bit of the special’s lead-in audience and demo rating in the following hour, raking in only a 0.4 and 2.57 million viewers. Meanwhile, “Big Bang Theory” and “Bull” reruns capped off the night for CBS.
On the CW, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (0.3) returned from a week off, down one-tenth from its last outing, while “Whose Line is it Anyway?” matched its previous episode’s 0.2. FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” (0.4) also stayed even week-to-week.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.2/5||0.8/4||0.4/2||0.4/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||4.44||4.71||3.13||1.92||1.03|

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.
