bachelorette6 7 TV ratings: 'Bachelorette,' CBS reruns lead MondayFast National ratings for Monday, June 7, 2010

Viewers were pretty cool toward two new scripted series on network TV Monday, and the return of “Last Comic Standing” didn’t do a ton for NBC either. That left “The Bachelorette” and CBS’ rerun lineup as the top performers for the night.

CBS averaged 7.6 million viewers and a 4.9 rating/8 share in households for the night, beating out ABC’s 6.9 million and 4.5/8. FOX (5.3 million, 3.4/6) came in third. NBC (4.75 million, 3.1/5) took fourth, while The CW was way off the pace with 728,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.

The top two networks switched places in the adults 18-49 demographic, with ABC’s 2.3 rating topping CBS’ 2.0. NBC, 1.8, and FOX, 1.6, were not far behind. The CW posted a 0.3.
