ABC | A three-hour (!) Bachelor in Paradise (2.8 mil/0.8) was down a tenth in the demo.
THE CW | Following significant adjustment due to MLB preemption, Stargirl (470K/0.1, read recap) and Supergirl (400K/0.1) were steady.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
