TV Ratings: 'Bachelor in Paradise' and 'Running Wild' Rise
With The Bachelorette out of the picture, NBC easily reclaimed Monday night with a steady American Ninja Warrior and a rising Running Wild. The pair averaged a respective 1.8 and 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 — the latter improving two-tenths of a point from the previous week.
Bachelor in Paradise fared better on Monday than it did during its Sunday premiere, rising two-tenths of a point to a 1.3 rating in the key demo. A softer lead-in than The Bachelorette had been, it segued into a new Whispers (0.7 adults). The drama was steady but at a live-plus-same-day series low.
So You Think You Can Dance fetched a 0.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers.
On The CW, steady episodes of Penn & Teller: Fool Us (0.5 adults) and Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.4 adults) led into the premiere of new comedy Significant Mother. It averaged a 0.3 in the key demo, which at least is better than what half-hour Dates is doing on Thursdays.
