Fast Demo 2016 Jun TUE.07

NBC:  Despite strong competition from THE BACHELORETTE on ABC, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT took the night with a 2.2 rating, although that was down 0.4 from last week.  The two shows had very different ratings trajectories, with BACHELORETTE remaining relatively steady through its 2 hours, while TALENT climbed from 1.8 in the first half-hour to 2.6 in the last.  MAYA & MARTY  fell 0.3 from last week’s premiere to 1.2.

ABC:  THE BACHELORETTE held Monday night’s 2.0.  A special 20/20 featuring an interview with Bobby Brown won the 10PM hour at 1.4.

FOX:  HOTEL HELL slipped 0.1 to 0.7, and COUPLED remained at 0.5.

CBS:  After 0.8/0.7 reruns, PERSON OF INTEREST was steady with last Tuesday at 1.0.

CW:  Reruns at 0.4, although those numbers could drop in finals due to a Chicago baseball preemption.

The NBA FINALS will give tonight to ABC.  For a much smaller group of viewers, the night’s highlight will be the season finale of FX’s THE AMERICANS.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
