Fox heats up, NBC’s ‘Ninja’ finale rises Monday

Both take advantage of ABC's soft 'Bachelor Pad' return

Fox won Monday’s ratings race in key demos as ”Hell’s Kitchen” and ”MasterChef” showed gains opposite ABC’s sluggish premiere of ”Bachelor Pad.” At NBC, ”American Ninja Warrior” ended its season on a nice note.

According to preliminary national estimates, ”Hell’s Kitchen” dominated Monday’s opening hour in most key categories (2.6/8 in 18-49, 6.3 million viewers overall), holding steady week to week. And at 9, ”MasterChef” (2.7/7 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) edged up for a fourth straight week and also easily led its hour.

At ABC, the third-season premiere of ”Bachelor Pad” settled for a 1.4/4 in 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., down more than 30% from last year’s opener. And the net continues to see weak scores at 10 p.m. for ”The Glass House” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 2.3 million viewers overall), which tied Telemundo for fourth-place among the broadcasters in the 18-49 demo.
