“Masterchef” led FOX to a second straight demographic win Monday night, although the show was down a bit from last week in adults 18-49. “Hotel Hell” and “Under the Dome” also dipped a little in the demographic, although the latter ticked up in viewers.

“Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” on the other hand, rose two tenths of a point to its best rating thus far. ABC’s “Mistresses” was also up, and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” had its best showing of the summer on The CW. “Bachelor in Paradise” was even with its debut last week.
