TV Ratings: 'MasterChef' Wins Monday, 'Bachelor Pad' Returns to Series Low
Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef continue to mean good Mondays for Fox. The two series topped all broadcast networks last night, winning among viewers (6.4 million) and the demo (a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49). Hell's Kitchen was even with last Monday's 2.6 adults rating, while MasterChef posted a tenth of a point gain for a 2.7 rating in the demo -- tying its season high.
The finale of American Ninja Warrior grew on NBC, posting a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49. Combined with a Fear Factor encore, NBC earned a second place demo showing with a 2.7 adults rating for the night. The network brought in 4.6 million viewers.
CBS encores brought in a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.1 million viewers. Univision tied the network in the demo, also posting a 1.3 adults rating.
Bachelor Pad staged its season three debut on ABC, falling 36 percent short of last summer's series high premiere. The two-hour broadcast earned a 1.4 adults rating and marked a series low. With some Bachelor Pad overflow, The Glass House was still even with last week's series low of a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49. ABC averaged a 1.2 adults rating and 3.9 million viewers.
Encores of 90210 and Remodeled earned The CW a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49.
