ABC was a big winner Monday, with two hours of the Bachelorette season finale rating a 2.5 in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen’s overnights. That was up from 1.6 last week, and the 2.4 in last year’s finale. Add in the Bachelorette after-show at 2.3, and ABC did a 2.4 for the night, with a 9 share.
NBC scored a 1.4/5, as American Ninja Warrior rated a flat 1.6 and Running Wild With Bear Grylls a 1.1, down 15% from last summer’s debut.
CBS and Fox were at 0.7/2. CBS was in repeats while Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance did a flat 0.7 across prime.
The CW had a pair of repeated episodes of Supergirl. Formerly on CBS, the show has moved to The CW.
