TV Ratings: Low 'Bachelorette' finale leads ABC Monday, while NBC's 'Ninja' rises

'Running Wild With Bear Grylls' has an OK start for NBC

Fast National ratings for Monday, July 28, 2014.

ABC's finale for "The Bachelorette" was far below last summer's "Bachelorette" finale and was barely up from last week's installment, but the three-hour telecast lit season highs anyway and led ABC to Monday wins in all key measures.

Other Monday notables saw "Under the Dome" stabilize among young viewers (but dip overall), FOX's "MasterChef" drop a hair, NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" continue its summer charge and "Running Wild With Bear Grylls" premiere to decent numbers.

On to the numbers...

TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' leads CBS Sunday, while 'Rising Star' drops again

'Unforgettable' and 'Reckless' also win overall

Fast National ratings for Sunday, July 27, 2014.

"Big Brother," "Unforgettable" and "Reckless" were all steady for CBS, leading the network to Sunday victories in all key measures.

Animation repeats put FOX in second overall (and first in the 18-34 demo), while ABC was second overall, as "Rising Star" continued to lose steam after a couple seemingly encouraging weeks.

On to the numbers...

Guillermo del Toro brings 'The Strain' to Comic-Con: Live-Blog

Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse and company lead the last Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2014

After live-blogs for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Following," it's time for the final Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2014.

It's Guillermo del Toro and company taking the stage for FX's "The Strain," which will be preceded by a screening on Sunday (July 27) night's episode, which was one of my favorites so far, featuring some jaw-droopingly gross moments, as well as a hilarious sequence for Corey Stoll's wig.

Apparently this is the first TV show ever to be paneled in Hall H during its first season.

Who knew?

Well, we all survived "The Following," which wasn't a bad panel, even if the crowd ran out of questions very early. My full "Following" live-blog is here.

Now it's time for "Sons of Anarchy." We did a "Sons of Anarchy" panel at TCA press tour less than a week ago, so we'll see what new details we get today...

We've got an hour of this and then "The Strain."

So let's get our "Sons of Anarchy" on...

It's Comic-Con Sunday. Woo!

Sunday is TV Day in Hall H and I'll be live-blogging panels for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Strain."

But first? Kevin Williamson and Kevin Bacon return to see if people are actually interested in what's in store for Season 3 of "The Following"...

Ra's al Ghul is coming to 'Arrow' and EP Marc Guggenheim offers details

Check out the DC Comics supervillain in an 'Arrow' Season 3 trailer

The "Arrow" Season 3 tease that played at Saturday's (July 27) Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment in Hall H was identical to the teaser that played before the Ballroom 20 panel on Friday.

Well, not in ALL ways. 

As Night of DC Entertainment MC Stephen Amell teased easier, the only difference in the sizzle reel was the last 15 seconds.

And what a difference those 15 seconds made, as they set up this "Arrow" season's big DC Comics' addition, noted League of Assassins frontman Ra's al Ghul, a character best known to the widest audience from Liam Neeson's performance in "Batman Begins." The character was name-dropped repeatedly last season on "Arrow" and his daughter Nyssa made several appearances tied to the origin story of Sara Lance as Black Canary.

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and company say farewell to Ballroom 20

We're half-way through the final season of HBO's "True Blood," so this is as good a time as any for a celebratory Comic-Con send-off.

Saturday's (July 26) Ballroom 20 panel is being moderated by the same guy who has moderated nearly all of the previous "True Blood" panels, so... I guess we know what to expect!

Anyway, it's one vampire to another, as I just wrapped my live-blog for "The Vampire Diaries."

Woo.

When last we left "The Vampire Diaries," Bonnie and Damon were holding hands and stepping into The Light. 

Oh no, right?

Well, Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham are still on the Saturday, July 26 San Diego Comic-Con panel for "The Vampire Diaries," so we somehow suspect they'll be back.

Click though and follow along with my live-blog as Julie Plec teases us with hints about the new status quo in Mystic Falls and how long it will last. And we'll get a sense of how fans felt about last year's overdose of dopplegangers and Travelers.

Justin Bieber may have killed Brian and other 'Family Guy' Comic-Con highlights

Seth Green and various 'Family Guy' scribes hit Ballroom 20 on Saturday

"Family Guy" hit Ballroom 20 on Saturday (July 26) for its annual Comic-Con panel, an event with kinda tends to ebb and flow in hype based on whether or not Seth MacFarlane is there to mock question-askers. 

This was a second consecutive Seth MacFarlane-free year. Last year he was working on "A Million Ways To Die In The West." This year, his absence was unexplained [on the "Family Guy" panel, but it came up at "American Dad" subsequently] and raises the possibility that Seth MacFarlane has just become too big for making fun of questioners at Comic-Con.

Fortunately, in lieu of Seth MacFarlane, the "Family Guy" team arrived with a longer clip reel for the season's hour-long "The Simpsons Guy" crossover event, which will air on September 28.

At TCA press tour last week we got a very brief sizzle reel that included jokes about the Springfield location ("I can't imagine we're allowed to say") and the yellowness of Springfield residents ("Don't drink the water. Everyone around here looks like they have hepatitis") and the tip of the Homer-Peter Giant Chicken-style brawl iceberg. 

The Comic-Con reel featured moments of amusing bonding between Bart and Stewie (let's just say that Stewie doesn't understand prank calls), Peter trying to coach Homer into successfully setting up cut-away gags, a "Bob's Burgers" cameo, the revelation that Pawtucket Patriot is just relabeled Duff and even more from that Homer-Peter fight, which will include a nuclear accident and a Kang & Kodos appearance.

I'm actually kinda looking forward to "The Simpsons Guy" and I stopped watching "Family Guy" last year at some point. 

The panel continued after those clips, though.
