TV Ratings: American Ninja Warrior Returns Down But Still Dominates

American Ninja Warrior Ratings

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s American Ninja Warrior Season 12 premiere delivered 3.5 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, down sharply from its Season 11 averages (4.7 mil/0.9) but still good enough to dominate Labor Day in both measures.

Over on ABC, Bachelor: GOAT (1.4 mil/0.2) hit and matched season lows with its finale.

Elsewhere, CBS’ Love Island (1.7 mil/0.3) was steady week-to-week, while Fox’s airing of Draft Day (featuring the late Chadwick Boseman) drew 1.4 mil and a 0.3.

The Live+Same Day Nielsen numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and and streaming platforms. These numbers instead are reported simply to illustrate any trends or superlatives. Kids, ask parents before calling.
