Ratings: Whose Line Scores Monday Highs for The CW, Dome Ties Low

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.

    Ugh, everything on network tv sucks right now.

    When does the fall season start up again?

    But, anyway, Yay CW!!!! I watch most of their shows and especially love Superantural

      A well-rated show on The CW barely can’t even get 2 million viewers. Most shows are under 1 million. That’s cable news channel ratings. CBS should just shut down The CW. All their shows (except Whose Line…) are terrible.

    Series low is still the highest rated of the night. Looks good for a renewal for Under The Dome. Lots more questions, but can’t wait for Julia and Barbie to get back together again.

      Under the Dome is finally getting good again. This hasn’t been a great season but last night was a good episode. I was hoping Barbee would run into Angie in Zenith

    Matt, just for craps and giggles….. what shows were airing on The CW at that time two and half years ago.
