ABC: 3.7/ 7, NBC: 2.9/ 5, CBS: 2.8/ 5, Fox: 1.9/ 3, CW: 0.8/ 1
Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
CBS: +27, Fox: +12, ABC and NBC: no change, CW: -11
ABC’s veteran “The Bachelorette” topped the evening with a healthy 4.5 rating/8 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. ET. Comparably, that bested competing “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC (#2: 3.0/ 5) by 50 percent and it was seven percent above the year-ago telecast. At this point, “The Bachelor”/”The Bachelorette” franchise can last for years (if not decades) into the future.
Despite the lead-in support, ABC summer “Grand Hotel” did not live up to its title with a 2.3/ 4 in households in the 10 p.m. hour. Comparable that trailed NBC’s “Dateline” and a repeat of “Bull” on CBS (each with a 2.9/ 5) by 21 percent.

Record Results for Season 3 of “Stranger Things”
Netflix, of course, does not release traditional audience viewership levels for its growing slate of original series. But according to the digital streamer, the third season of “Stranger Things” (all 8 episodes released on July 4 and through July 8) 40.7 million member accounts have watched at least part of “Stranger Things'” current season. (Disclaimer: Netflix counts a “view” as a member account having watched 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a film.).
Comparably, this is the strongest turnout for any Netflix series (again according to the streamer). The second season of “Stranger Things” in 2017 scored an average 8.8 million viewers within the first three days of its release.
Also according to Netflix, 18.2 million member households have already finished the eight-episode season (so far). But, as usual, there is no total viewer tally.
