ABC once again courted the highest ratings in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic during primetime on Monday, as Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia traveled to France with their suitors on “The Bachelorette.”

The long-running reality dating series secured a 0.72 in the demo, which was the top spot of the night. However, the episode was just edged out for the title of most-watched by a rerun of CBS’ “The Neighborhood,” which earned 3.2 million viewers (compared to the 3.1 million people who tuned in for “The Bachelorette”). 

ABC might still have earned the title of most-watched overall, but a less than favorable showing from its newest reality competition series “Claim to Fame” sunk its average viewership to 2.7
