TV Ratings: 'Bachelorette' Dips, 'BrainDead' Holds Steady
Reality ruled once again on Monday night.
Although The Bachelorette dipped two-tenths to a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, the dating competition still tied with American Ninja Warrior for top-rated programming of the night.
Ninja Warrior was able to hold steady despite moving an hour back to 9 p.m. to follow Olympic swimming trials on NBC. (Major League Baseball aired instead on the NBC affiliate in San Francisco, so numbers are subject to change.)
Elsewhere on ABC, Mistresses (0.7 adults) was even from the previous week.
CBS got some news. After opening to tepid numbers and falling again last week, scripted summer entry BrainDead held steady at a 0.5 rating.
So You Think You Can Dance (0.9 adults) and Houdini & Doyle (0.4) were flat for Fox.
The CW was quiet with a night of reruns.
