“The Bachelorette” gets a four-peat for ABC — and Univision scores an upset
ABC has a good case of the Mondays.
The alphabet network won Monday night for the fourth week in a row with strong performances from its reality shows, "The Bachelorette" and "True Beauty."
Unfortunately, "The Good Guys" doesn't look so good for Fox — and "Last Comic Standing" had trouble standing up to competition.

BACHELORETTE PARTY The dating show continues to dominate, averaging a 2.7 rating/9 share in the key adults 18-49 demographic on Monday. "True Beauty" averaged 2.0/6. Both shows built on their audiences from the previous week. Overall, ABC won the night with a 2.5/8 average, 32 percent more viewers than second place CBS, which scored a 1.9/6 with a night of repeats.
FALL GUYS A new episode of freshman comedy "The Good Guys" got low numbers for Fox, averaging a 1.2/4 and landing in last place from 9-10 p.m., down one-10th from last week. The show is slated to air on Fridays at 9 p.m. in the fall, but that might change if it doesn't pick up. "Lie to Me" was also a disappointment, posting a 1.8/6 for a new episode that aired from 8-9 p.m., down 10 percent from last week's numbers.
WHO'S THE BOSS? A new episode of Univision's novela "Soy Tu Duena" beat "The Good Guys" and a new epsiode of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC from 9-10 p.m. "Soy Tu Duena," which roughly translates to "I'm Your Boss Lady," is a first-season show about a rich woman with a bad reputation. It scored an impressive average of 2.0/6.
PEACOCK-BLOCKED None of NBC's new episodes fared well. "Last Comic Standing" scored 1.8/5 and was stuck in fourth place from 9-10 p.m. behind ABC, CBS and Univision. Mystery drama "Persons Unknown" averaged 1.1/3, for a third place finish behind "True Beauty" and CBS' repeat of "CSI: Miami."
