The season finale of "The Bachelorette" recorded season highs across the board Monday, giving ABC a ratings win for the night.

Also Tuesday, "Under the Dome" was down a bit for CBS but remained solid as the network's blackout on Time Warner Cable doesn't seem to be having a big effect on ratings. "Get Out Alive" was up a little for NBC.

ABC averaged 8.7 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/9 share in households for the night, leading second-place CBS (6.3 million, 4.1/7) by a pretty good margin. NBC (3.5 million, 2.1/3) came in third. FOX took fourth with 1.75 million viewers and a 1.1/2, and The CW trailed with 564,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.

ABC's 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic was a point better than CBS' 1.6. NBC was third with a 1.1, followed by FOX, 0.7, and The CW, 0.2.
