TV ratings: 'Bachelorette' leads ABC again Monday; Stanley Cup numbers rise
A pretty quiet Monday night in the ratings ended with ABC and "The Bachelorette" on top, although the show was off a bit from its performance last week. NBC's coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals, meanwhile, improved some as the Boston Bruins forced a seventh game with the Vancouver Canucks.
ABC averaged 7.15 million viewers and a 5.0 rating/8 share in households for the night. CBS came in second with 6 million viewers and a 4.1/6, while NBC (5.3 million, 3.2/5) was third. (NBC's numbers will change some because of its live sports telecast.) FOX (4.1 million, 2.6/4) took fourth, while The CW managed only 645,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.
ABC also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.3 rating, beating out NBC's 1.9. FOX, 1.7, finished third in the demo, beating out CBS' 1.4. The CW drew a 0.2.
