under the dome july 22 TV ratings: 'Under the Dome' and 'The Bachelorette' rise Monday but 'Breaking Pointe' strugglesFast National ratings for Monday, July 22, 2013

Monday was a pretty decent night for the broadcast networks, as several shows improved on their ratings from last week. “Under the Dome” was once again the night’s top show, improving in both viewers and adults 18-49 for the second straight week.

“The Bachelorette” also ticked up with its “Men Tell All” episode, and ABC’s “Mistresses” was also up. So were “American Ninja Warrior” and “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” for NBC. The good news didn’t extend to the premiere of The CW’s “Breaking Pointe,” however — it was down significantly from its debut a year ago. NBC’s news special on the birth of the royal baby also didn’t do much business.

CBS brought in 6.8 million viewers and a 4.4 rating/7 share in households for the night. ABC (5.7 million, 4.0/6) came in second, a good ways ahead of NBC (4 million, 2.5/4). FOX came in fourth with 1.9 million viewers and a 1.2/2. The CW (632,000, 0.4/1) trailed.

ABC and CBS tied for the top spot among adults 18-49 with 1.7 ratings. NBC was third at 1.3, followed by FOX, 0.7, and The CW, 0.2.
