ABC’s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special this cycle drew 7.1 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating — down double digits from last week’s regular episode, as is tradition*, but up 27 and 29 percent from last summer’s MTA.
*Someone illuminate me: Why do fans tune out for a week when the guys come back to tell all? Seems to me if you’re in for a penny, you’re in for a pound.
Also on the upside this Monday was NBC’s American Ninja Warrior, rising 12 and 21 percent to 4.46 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating. Leading into that, Fear Factor (4.2 mil/1.5) was up a few percentage points itself.
• Both Hell’s Kitchen (6.2 mil/2.6) and MasterChef (6.3 mil/2.6) rose a few percentage points week-to-week and shared the nightly demo win.
• ABC’s Glass House held steady at 2.8 mil/1.0, trailing a Hawaii Five-0 rerun but edging out a Grimm repeat.
• The CW’s special on Batmobiles (1.04 mil/0.4) did double the numbers of last Monday’s Breaking Pointe finale encore. Holy zero ramifications, Batman!
