Becca and her boys brought ABC first place in Nielsen ratings and total viewers Monday night. A new episode of “The Bachelorette” dipped a bit from last week, but was one of the only fresh programs on the Big 4 networks for the evening.
The fresh installment of the dating competition series beat Fox’s second week of “So You Think You Can Dance,” which held steady against its premiere — but couldn’t win in an eyeballs and key demo dance-off with CBS and NBC.
ABC was first in ratings with a 1.2 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 4.7 million, according to preliminary numbers.
