Monday Overnights: An Expanded Edition of Fox’s ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Cannot Compete

Monday, August 26, 2019
Household Rating/Share
ABC and NBC: 3.0/ 5 each, CBS: 2.5/ 4, Fox: 1.8/ 3, CW: 0.7/ 1
Percent Change Vs. the Comparable Year-Ago Week:
CBS: + 9, ABC: no change, NBC: – 3, Fox: -18, CW: -30
Ratings Breakdown:
ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” topped this final Monday in August, with a 3.5 rating/6 share in households from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, that was slightly above the 3.2/ 6 for competing “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC. The moral of this story: both summer shows have years of life ahead.
Elsewhere, there was nothing new to report. A two-hour edition of Fox’s tired “So You Think You Can Dance” could not compete at a 1.7/ 3 in households from 8-10 p.m. Maybe it is time to give the dance competition a rest. NBC’s “Dateline” (#1: 2.5/ 5 at 10 p.m.) bested ABC’s failing “Grand Hotel” (#3: 1.9/ 4) by 32 percent. The CW was also at typical Monday summer overnight levels, while CBS was in all repeats as follows:
