TV Ratings: 'Bachelorette' Leads Monday, 'Running Wild' Returns
The Bachelorette topped another Monday, averaging a steady 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 for ABC. The two-hour episode was followed by a similarly steady The Whispers (0.9 adults) at 10 p.m.
American Ninja Warrior (1.7 adults) dropped just two-tenths of a point on NBC. Running Wild With Bear Grylls, not to be confused with The Island With Bear Grylls, returned to the schedule in line with last summer. It averaged a 1.3 rating in the key demo.
The rest of the broadcast dial saw little change from last week. So You Think You Can Dance pulled a 1.0 rating with adults 18-49 on Fox — and, on The CW, Penn & Teller: Fool Us (0.5 adults), Whose Line Is It Anyway (0.5 adults) and Cedric's Barber Battle (0.4 adults) were all steady.
