Ratings: Ninja Warrior Slips to Season Lows Yet Ekes Out Labor Day Win

An American Ninja Warrior outing that was chockablock with startling stumbles drew 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating on Monday night, slipping 18 and 16 percent to match its season lows yet leading Labor Day on both counts.

Leading out of that, Running Wild (3.3 mil/1.0) was down 23 and 29 percent.

Over on ABC, Bachelor in Paradise (5 mil/1.5) and this season’s penultimate Mistresses (2.6 mil/0.5) each dipped a tenth. Reminder: Mistresses finale airs tonight!

Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance ticked down to new series lows: 2.4 mil and a 0.6.

Cable ratings (e.g. the RizzIsles series finale) famously come in much, much later and are reported under separate cover as warranted.
