Reality shows are apparently having a good week. ABC's The Bachelorette is steady from the last airing. American Ninja Warrior is pulling really good numbers (1.6/2.0), rising four tenths in the second hour on a Monday. Spartan remains steady with a 1.5. The only outlier of the night, So You Think You Can Dance?, was at a low 0.8, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt since FOX's unscripted ratings average is pretty abysmal.

In the scripted arena, ABC's Mistresses was even with the previous airing at a 0.8. CBS's BrainDead scores an abysmal new low with a 0.5 A18-49 rating. For those of you keeping score at home, that's lower than Extant's 0.6 last season and just may be the second lowest rated summer broadcast drama this season on the Big 4. FOX's Houdini & Doyle and NBC's Aquarius are currently tied for first place for lowest rated scripted summer drama. That's not good news for CBS.

In the kiddie pool known as the CW, the season finale of Reign was up a tenth from last week to a 0.3. Whose Line is it Anyway? was even with a 0.3, after being adjusted down a tenth in the finals last week. With CW unscripted ratings already near a 0.2, I'm wondering where that floor lies. Cedric's Barber Battle and A Wicked Offer were essentially canceled and America's Next Top Model is moving to VH1 after pulling the same ratings current entries Whose Line and Masters of Illusion are now pulling. It will be interesting as the rest of the summer goes on.
Finals Update: The Bachelorette (2.1) adjusts up a tenth, while Spartan (1.4) and Mistresses (0.7) adjust down a tenth in the finals.
