The last night of voting for Emmy nominations saw The Bachelorette (1.9/7) hedge its bets with a two-on-one date and more than one rose at the end of the show. Extravagance or indecision aside, it wasn’t exactly a winning move ratingswise for the ABC romance reality show. The Bachelorette saw a 10% decline vs. last week’s season high among adults 18-49. Now, that June 20 show did see The Bachelorette rise a tenth in the final numbers so there might be some ground made up later today. On the flipside, The Bachelorette was the most watched show of the night with 6.80 million tuning in.
For now, The Bachelorette is tied for the Monday demo top spot with NBC’s American Ninja Warrior (1.9/7). Moving to 9 PM from its regular 8 PM perch so the home of the Olympics could get in an hour of Swimming Trials (1.2/5), ANW was up a tenth from last week. However, NBC had baseball coverage on its San Francisco affiliate so those numbers might see an adjustment later. Currently, Nielsen has NBC winning the night with a 1.7/5 rating and 5.76 million viewers. ABC is a close second place with a 1.5/5 rating and an audience of 5.68 million.
Following The Bachelorette, Mistresses (0.7/3) was even with last week, as was CBS’ only original of the night, BrainDead (0.5/2) and Fox’s Houdini & Doyle (0.4/2). Fox’s Monday reality contender So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation (0.9/4) was up a tenth from its June 20 show.
