TV Ratings: Bear Grylls Gets a Bump on Monday
MasterChef may have been down a shade (two-tenths of a ratings point) on Fox Monday night, but it still easily won the night. With an average 1.8 rating among adults 18-49, MasterChef was the highest-rated broadcast outing. At 10 p.m., Hotel Hell (1.3 adults) held steady.
Running Wild With Bear Grylls is proving to be solid for NBC. Three weeks in, the series improved two-tenths of a point for a new high: a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49. It was partnered with an American Ninja Warrior recap.
Bachelor in Paradise (1.4 adults) held its premiere score, and Mistresses was also steady (1.0 adults) — while on CBS, Under the Dome (1.5 adults) was also in line with last week's live-plus-same day rating.
Whose Line Is It Anyway improved a tenth of a point on the CW, averaging a 0.7 rating in the key demo.
