This Monday ’twas a good night for ye olde reality TV, as most shows were up in the ratings or, at worst, flat.
ABC’s The Bachelorette (with 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.5 rating) and The Glass House (3.3 mil/1.2) saw the best bounces, gaining 9 percent in the demo week-to-week. Reminder: The Bach finale is airing on a special night, and with a new “live” element.
And while Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen only matched its week-ago 5.8 mil/2.4, MasterChef (5.4 mil/2.3) inched up a tenth in the demo.
The only original programming on the downside, and barely at that, was America’s Got Talent, which slipped a couple of percentage points (to 10.2 mil and a 2.9) yet still easily led the night in both measures. (Leading into AGT, a half-hour Olympics sprinting trial drew 7.3 mil/1.8.)
