bachelorette finale 2013 ratings TV ratings: 'Bachelorette' finale leads ABC to Monday win, 'Under the Dome' fallsFast National ratings for Monday, Aug. 5, 2013

The season finale of “The Bachelorette” recorded season highs across the board Monday, giving ABC a ratings win for the night.

Also Tuesday, “Under the Dome” was down a bit for CBS but remained solid as the network’s blackout on Time Warner Cable doesn’t seem to be having a big effect on ratings. “Get Out Alive” was up a little for NBC.

ABC averaged 8.7 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/9 share in households for the night, leading second-place CBS (6.3 million, 4.1/7) by a pretty good margin. NBC (3.5 million, 2.1/3) came in third. FOX took fourth with 1.75 million viewers and a 1.1/2, and The CW trailed with 564,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.

ABC’s 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic was a point better than CBS’ 1.6. NBC was third with a 1.1, followed by FOX, 0.7, and The CW, 0.2.
