Ratings: Ninja Warrior Tops Memorial Day, Up From Previous Premiere

American Ninja Warrior Ratings

The season opener of NBC’s American Ninja Warrior on Memorial Day drew 5.9 million total viewers and a 1.8 demo rating, leading the night in both measures and up 16 percent and two tenths from its previous opener.

Versus its September finale, ANW added a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

Leading out of that, The Island retained 4 mil and a 1.2, placing third and second (behind an NCIS: LA rerun) in the time slot.

Over on ABC, 500 Questions (5.2 mil/1.1) scored its largest audience yet and its second-highest demo number, up 30 and 38 percent from its Friday installment. The Bachelorette (5.3 mil/1.6) dropped 25 percent from its premiere but matched last year’s Memorial Day rating.

    American Ninja Warrior is so good and so inspirational. I’m glad that NBC decided to bring it back this summer.

    What a way to kick off Summer TV but on the cable side, did anyone watched WWE Monday Night Raw last night when Stephen Amell the star of Arrow (The CW) got into a confrontation with Stardust presumably known as Cody Rhodes?
