TV Ratings: 'Bachelorette' in Iceland ices win for ABC Monday

ali-bachelorette-iceland.jpgFast National ratings for Monday, June 21, 2010.

"The Bachelorette" helped ABC narrowly edge out a win over CBS, as its 7.26 million viewers and 4.8 rating/8 share was about 150K better than CBS' 7.12 million and 4.6/8.

FOX's "Lie to Me"/"Good Guys" pairing was good for 3rd at 5.1 million, 3.3/6. NBC trailed in 4th place at 3.5 million, 2.2/4 and the CW was far back in last at 835K, 0.5/1.

In the 18-49 demo, ABC's win was larger. Its 2.5 topped CBS' 1.9, FOX at 1.5, NBC at 1.3 and the CW at 0.3. Interestingly, while ABC usually wins that demo with "The Bachelorette" slots, it doesn't usually win for "True Beauty," but this week it did.
