Ratings: American Ninja Warrior Climbs, Bests The Bachelorette

NBC’s American Ninja Warrior this Monday drew 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.0 rating, up 7 percent and two tenths and besting The Bachelorette in the demo for the first time since June 8.

Season to date, ANW is up 29 and 17 percent from last summer.

And that’s about as exciting as today’s ratings post gets, folks. Because almost every other show was flat as a rock, save for The CW’s Whose Line (1.4 mil/0.4) and Barber Battle (780K/0.2), which each dipped a tenth in the demo to tie series lows.

But for the completists out there….

NBC | Running Wild did 3.5 mil and a 1.2.

ABC | Bachelorette did 6.9 mil/1.9; The Whispers 3.4 mil/0.9.

FOX | So You Think You Can Dance did 3.2 mil/1.0.

THE CW | Penn & Teller did 1.8 mil/0.5.
