The Bachelorette tied its season high in Monday's ratings, and it helped ABC's Grand Hotel put up decent premiere numbers as well. 

Back in its regular home after a Tuesday airing a week ago, The Bachelorette scored a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, up 0.2 week to week and tying with its June 3 high. It's also at a season high in total viewers with 5.53 million.

Grand Hotel, meanwhile, debuted with a 0.7 in adults 18-49, tying for the lead at 10 p.m., and 3.72 million viewers. Those figures are on par with the debut of The Proposal (0.8, 3.79 million) in the same spot a year ago.

NBC's American Ninja Warrior held steady in its move to Monday night after opening the season Wednesdays. It scored a 0.9 in adults 18-49, even with its last airing two weeks ago, and improved by 9 percent in viewers (4.75 million versus 4.35 million). Dateline recorded a 0.7 and 4 million viewers at 10.

Fox's Beat Shazam was steady at a 0.6 in adults 18-49, but So You Think You Can Dance slipped a little to 0.5. Penn & Teller: Fool Us premiered with a 0.3 on The CW, even with its average last summer. Whose Line Is It Anyway? posted a 0.2 for its premiere.

ABC led the night in adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating, holding a 50 percent lead over second-place NBC (0.8). Fox posted a 0.5, and a night of repeats on CBS averaged 0.4. The CW drew a 0.2.
