TV Ratings: Stanley Cup Tops 'Bachelorette' for Monday Win
NBC nabbed a Monday win from ABC, thanks to another solid showing from the Stanley Cup Finals.
Game 4, which averaged a 4.1 rating among metered market households, was up 33 percent from the comparable face-off last June. Early demo ratings have it averaging a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 ahead of time-zone adjustments.
That easily put the network ahead of ABC, despite The Bachelorette rising from Memorial Day, a week ago. The show averaged a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and nearly 6 million viewers between 8 and 10 p.m. Still Star-Crossed held its very small premiere haul with another 0.5 rating in the demo.
Fox aired back-to-back episodes of Gotham, culminating in the season finale. The pair of episodes each averaged a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49.
On the CW, Whose Line Is It Anyway? earned a 0.3 rating in the key demo.
