“Bachelor in Paradise” may not be putting up those “Bachelorette” numbers for ABC, but the start to the show’s second week last night was steady with its debut seven days ago. And that consistency led the show’s home network to edge out NBC as Monday’s primetime Nielsen ratings winner in the all-important adults 18-49 range, according to early numbers.
However, NBC didn’t go home empty handed, taking No. 1 in total viewers for the evening, thanks to “American Ninja Warrior.”
ABC was first in ratings with a 1.0 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4 million, according to preliminary numbers. From 8-10 p.m., “Bachelor in Paradise” scored a 1.3/6 and 4.7 million viewers. At 10, “The Proposal” settled for a 0.6/2 and 2.5 million viewers.
