American Ninja Warrior received a nom in 2016 and is back in the swing of things this year.

American Ninja Warrior notched another season high Monday.

With Nielsen numbers starting to trickle in after a Hurricane Irma-induced delay, the NBC reality competition emerged as Monday's top show with a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo — a new season high. Warrior also pulled in an average of 6.3 million viewers, the show's largest audience since August 2016.

Warrior's impressive outing helped NBC to best the other broadcast networks. The network also had a steady outing of supernatural drama Midnight, Texas (0.7 adults).

(NBC's New Orleans station was preempted by football.)

On ABC, Bachelor in Paradise wrapped its, ahem, eventful fourth season steady from last week, drawing a 1.3 rating. A new episode of To Tell the Truth (0.7) was flat.

So You Think You Can Dance (0.6 adults) was also even for Fox.
