Ratings: Running Wild Draws Record Crowd With AGT Lead-In, Zoo Rises

NBC’s Running Wild With Bear Grylls on Tuesday night drew 5.3 million total viewers — a series high — and a 1.8 rating, matching its second-best demo number ever, with the mighty America’s Got Talent as a lead-in.

Versus Monday’s season opener, Running Wild surged 66 and 63 percent.

Opening the Peacock’s night, AGT (11.3 mil/2.4) ticked up 8 percent and a tenth week-to-week.

Elsewhere….

CBS | Zoo (4.5 mil/0.8) ticked up, tying its season high in the demo.

ABC | Bachelor in Paradise (4.6 mil/1.4) surged 27 percent from its previous, Sunday opener. Mistresses (2.5 mil/0.6) slipped 16 percent and a tenth from its most recent Monday outing.

FOX | Coupled (1.1 mil/0.4) was flat with its finale. I think at this point I am allowed to ask: What was Coupled?

THE CW | Pending adjustments due to significant baseball preemption, both Whose Line (1.6 mil/0.5) and MADtv (1.2 mil/0.4) are currently on the upside.

    Nick Jonas and Bear was really good. Too bad it had such steep competition.
    Zoo was good, but don’t get why the people in the church felt it was a good idea to hike for days.
    Bach in Paradise…. trainwreck. I wonder if ratings will drop much after Chad leaves. I am annoyed they are spreading it out over two nights for the summer. Come on!!!!

      They are milking The Chad big time. Chris Harrison kicked him out on last night’s ep but yet he’s in the previews for next week, LOL!!! They really trashed the guy last night, didn’t hold anything back in the editing. And Evan is still obsessed with Chad. He was talking about the guy even before he showed up. Once Chad is really gone I’ll stop watching, IDC about all the couple swapping and hissy fits.
