TV ratings: 'Hell's Kitchen,' 'Bachelor Pad' lead a quiet Monday
"Hell's Kitchen" continued its recent run of leading the adults 18-49 demographic on Monday nights, improving on last week's numbers. "Bachelor Pad" helped ABC score a win in total viewers, but it was a relatively quiet evening all around.
ABC averaged 5.6 million viewers and a 4.0 rating/6 share in households in primetime. NBC (5.3 million, 3.6/6) stands in second for now, though its numbers are inflated a little because some affiliates aired an NFL preseason game. FOX came in third with 5 million viewers and a 3.1/5, finishing a little ahead of CBS (4.9 million, 3.4/5). The CW was well off the pace with just over 700,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.
FOX led among adults 18-49 with a 2.2 rating. ABC took second in the demo with a 1.6, and CBS and NBC tied for third at 1.3. The CW posted a 0.3.
