TV Ratings: 'Bachelorette' Dips, 'MasterChef' Rises

The latest installment of ABC's The Bachelorette was one of its lowest-rated regular episodes this summer.

Bachelorette (7.9 million total viewers, 2.4) slipped 8 percent, while lead-out Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (5.8 million, 2.0) also sank 9 percent. The two reality series powered ABC for the Monday ratings win in viewers (7.2 million) and the demo (2.2).

Fox's MasterChef (4.9 million, 2.0), however, rose 11 percent compared to last week in its new 9 p.m. time slot.

Though finals will come in later, NBC's Stanley Cup Finals is likely to be down from last year's comparable Game 6.
