Fast National ratings for Monday, June 2, 2014.
Breaking through an early summer of weak ratings, Monday night actually offered many glimmers of hope for the five networks.
At the top of the heap were ABC, which won overall with the rising "The Bachelorette," while FOX scored a narrow win among young viewers with building episodes of both "MasterChef" and "24: Live Another Day."
But that wasn't the only good news.
NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" got a good week-to-week bump and actually ranked as Monday's top show in the key demographic.
The CW's impressively reliable "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" did good numbers in its summer premiere and boosted the return of the inexplicably renewed "Beauty and the Beast" to numbers that almost could explicate the renewal.
And "Mistresses" had an OK return on ABC.
On to the numbers...
