-Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
CW: +43, ABC and Fox: no change, CBS: – 4, NBC: – 6

-Ratings Breakdown:
It was summer Monday overnight business as usual with 8-10 p.m. reality entries “Bachelor in Paradise” on ABC and “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC tied for dominance at a 3.6 rating/6 share each in households. ABC, unfortunately, continues to squander the lead-in support on recent relationship/reality entry “The Proposal,” which slipped to a series-low 1.7/ 3 at 10 p.m. (#3). Comparably, that trailed “Elementary” on CBS (#1: 2.7/ 5) and a repeat of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC (2.1/ 4) by 39 percent and 19 percent, respectively.

Also original last night was two more hours of veteran “So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox (#4: 2.2/ 4 from 8-10 p.m.), likely-to-be canceled CBS drama “Salvation” (#4: 1.8/ 3 at 9 p.m.), and The CW’s pairing of summer staples “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” (#5: 1.2/ 2 at 8 p.m.) and “Whose Line is it Anyway?” (#5: 0.9/ 2 in the 9 p.m. half-hour). Don’t fret…the start of the new TV season is now just 27 days away!
