Padma Lakshmi helped the CW cook up some superlatives this Monday night.
With her visit to Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the top chef drew 1.9 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, up 19 percent and a tenth to score the improv program’s best numbers since September.
Paired with a solid 8:30 rerun (1.85 mil/0.7), Whose Line delivered The CW’s most watched 8 o’clock Monday hour in three-and-a-half years, and its highest rated in two-and-a-half years.
Elsewhere on the night….
FOX | MasterChef (5.2 mil/1.8) slipped two tenths in the demo yet as usual topped the night in that measure. Hotel Hell (3.8 mil/1.3) dipped one tenth.
ABC | Bachelor in Paradise (5.1 mil/1.4) was flat, but Mistresses (3.5 mil/1.0) ticked up a tenth.
NBC | Three-week-old Running Wild With Bear Grylls (4.6 mil/1.5) did its best numbers to date, rising 15 percent and two tenths.
CBS | Under the Dome (6.9 mil/1.5) delivered the night’s largest audience but dipped a tenth in the demo to match its series low.
