TV ratings: 'The Bachelorette' and 'Hell's Kitchen' top an 'AGT'-free Monday
"The Bachelorette" and "Hell's Kitchen" both saw their ratings rise Monday, as the clinching game of the Stanley Cup Finals didn't provide as much competition as "America's Got Talent." FOX's other culinary competition, "Masterchef," was also up over its premiere last week.
ABC led the night in viewers, averaging 6.6 million people and a 4.6 rating/8 share in households. FOX (6 million, 3.4/5) came in second, a little bit ahead of CBS (5.7 million, 3.8/6). NBC took fourth with 4.15 million viewers and a 2.6/4 (its numbers will likely rise a little with adjustments for live hockey coverage), and The CW (583,000, 0.4/1) was way back with a slate of repeats.
FOX scored a win among adults 18-49 with a 2.7 rating, leading ABC's 1.9 by a comfortable margin. NBC came in third in the demographic with a 1.6, followed by CBS at 1.4. The CW posted a 0.2.
