With America Ninja Warrior airing an encore, a boosted Bachelor in Paradise stepped in to become the night's top-rated series.

Monday's episode of the ABC series jumped three-tenths of a point from the previous week, averaging a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. Postshow After Paradise rose even more, four-tenths of a point, to a 1.1 rating in the key demo.

All of that Paradise growth did not aid The Whispers. The summer drama heads into its finale with a steady 0.6 rating among adults 18-49.

The rest of the broadcast fare was also steady. So You Think You Can Dance again was unmoved on Fox, netting a 0.9 adults rating. And on The CW, the trio of Penn & Teller: Fool Us (0.6 adults), Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.5 adults) and Significant Mother (0.3 adults) all saw little movement.
