A reality-heavy Monday brought a demo win for NBC — though ABC had the top telecast of the night with The Bachelorette.

ABC's summer reality flagship averaged a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.9 million viewers. Partnered with Still Star-Crossed, however, ABC ranked No. 2 for the night. The summer drama is languishing, now averaging a 0.4 rating in the key demo.

American Ninja Warrior was also even with the previous week, scoring a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49. Lead-out Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge jumped three-tenths of a point at 10 o'clock. It averaged a 1.2 demo rating.

The only other original competition for the night was on Fox. Both So You Think You Can Dance (0.9 adults) and Superhuman (0.7 adults) held their premiere ratings.
