TV Ratings: 'Running Wild' and 'Ninja Warrior' Jump
NBC topped the broadcast networks on Monday night with rebounding episodes of American Ninja Warrior and Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
The stunt competition was up a whopping 62 percent from last week's clip show, averaging a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49. Running Wild was similarly up — on the day it was announced President Barack Obama was set to appear on an Alaska-focused episode — improving four-tenths of a point in the key demo for a 1.3 rating.
ABC saw Bachelor in Paradise (1.5 adults) shed three-tenths of a point at 8 p.m. Talker After Paradise (1.0 adults) and The Whispers (0.7 adults) were steady — with the latter airing its season (and likely series) finale.
So You Think You Can Dance pulled a steady 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 on Fox. And on The CW, Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.7 adults) jumped three-tenths of a point in between steady episodes of Penn & Teller: Fool Us (0.6 adults) and Significant Mother (0.3 adults).
