Ratings Breakdown:
ABC inched past NBC for Monday overnight dominance, with the return of “Bachelor in Paradise” top-rated for the evening at a 3.8 rating/6 share in households from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, this was right on par from the year-ago evening and six percent above competing “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC (3.6/ 6). The battle among the key demographics should be a close call between the two reality series.

Despite the respectable lead-in support, a Monday 10 p.m. edition of ABC’s “The Gong Show” dipped to a 2.1/ 4, which still tied scripted drama “Midnight, Texas” on NBC for first in the time period. Third was recently introduced CBS newsmagazine “CBSN: On Assignment” at a mere 1.9/ 3. Comparably, that was equal to a repeat of “Scorpion” on the year-ago evening.

Also original last night was Fox’s tired “So You Think You Can Dance” at a typically diluted 2.2/ 4 from 8-10 p.m. And docuseries “Hooten & the Lady” on the CW scored a 0.6/ 1 (#5) at 9 p.m. out of a 0.7/ 1 for an encore telecast of “Supergirl.”
