ABC earned a rose — and an outright win — Monday night on the back of "The Bachelorette" season finale and "After the Final Rose" special. But CBS' "Under the Dome" was the most-watched show of the night, despite the fact that the network is still blacked out by Time Warner Cable in the retransmission battle.
ABC was first in ratings with a 2.6 rating/7 share in the advertiser-desired 18-49 demographic and first in total viewers with an average of 8.7 million, according to preliminary numbers.
"The Bachelorette" season finale at 8 p.m. earned a 2.6/8 and 8.8 million viewers, making it the highest-rated program of the night, but was the series lowest-rated finale ever. At 9, "The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose" got a 2.5/7 and 8.3 million viewers, but tied for its own lowest ratings ever.
CBS was second in ratings with a 1.6/5 and in total viewers with 6.3 million. After reruns, "Under the Dome" at 10 earned a 2.5/7 and 10.2 million viewers.
