Preliminary Ratings: Monday 05/30/16

ABC edged out NBC to win the first Monday night of the 2016 summer season, as THE BACHELORETTE scored the most viewers and the best ratings in the three key demos. The dating reality show did drop 700,000 viewers and between 20 and 25 percent in the key demo ratings, from last week's premiere. At 10 PM, the season premiere of MISTRESSES was very soft, ranking third in the hour.

NBC coverage of game one of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals produced a relatively solid 1.2 rating in Adults 18-49 and a 1.5 rating  the older, A25-54 demographic. Last year's game one drew5.6 million viewers and a solid 1.9 rating in the A18-49 demo.

CBS was third place, with two hour of encore SCORPION episodes and a new PERSON OF INTEREST. POI did place second in the time slot, beating ABC's MISTRESSES.

For FOX, it was another disappointing season premiere for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, which only managed 3.7 million viewers and a 1.0 rating int he demo. That is down from last year's 1.3 demo rating, which was down from the previous year. Why does FOX continue to renew this series?
