  2. From ABC:

    ABC’s The Bachelorette Emerges as Monday’s #1 TV Show Over NBC’s American Ninja Warrior

    The Bachelorette (8-10pm – 5.9 million and 1.6/6 in Adults 18-49): From 8-10pm head to head against NBC’s American Ninja Warrior and returning from the prior week’s preemption for the NBA Finals, ABC’s The Bachelorette finished as Monday’s No. 1 TV show in Total Viewers (5.9 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.6/6), beating its NBC unscripted competition on both counts (5.8 million and 1.5/6). It was the 3rd straight telecast for The Bachelorette to rank as Monday’s top series on both counts.

    · Despite the prior week’s preemption, The Bachelorette held even with its last telecast in the Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 ratings, which adjusted up 1-tenth in the Nationals.

  3. I figured that ANW and Spartan would bounce back after being against the NBA Finals last week.

  4. How is Still Star Crossed still on? I know it’s summer, but those are some horrible numbers. Spartan got a boost this week by having a team of American Ninja Warriors compete. Not surprisingly, they won their heat.
