TV Ratings 5/22/17: Bachelorette Returns Down from 2016 Premiere, DWTS Ticks Up by A Lot (UPDATED)

Monday was a very good night for most of broadcast, with many shows improving on last week's performances. ABC has the best night by far, with Dancing With the Stars rising a solid three tenths for the first part of its finale. The Bachelorette was an insane improvement on the 10 PM slot, nearly tripling Quantico's performance in that slot and it improved the 9 PM hour, as well. It was down a bit from the 2016 premiere, but it was still a very strong performance. The Voice on NBC was also up, though it was by just a tenth. It's lead-out, Running Wild, was lower than The Wall's performance these past few weeks, but was still an improvement on many episodes of Taken, so that's something. On Fox, Gotham was up a tenth, but Lucifer stayed stuck at a 0.8. It's not a promising rating at all for Lucifer, which will have to lead into newbie The Gifted in fall. All I can say is that the Gifted will likely have its work cut out for it. CBS aired filler programming after airing the finales of all of their Monday shows in the past few weeks. Their Diana special pulled in pretty weak ratings and was well below the MWAP finale and Big Bang/Kevin repeats airing last week. The Carpool Karaoke special was also pretty weak, and was down two tenths from last year's edition.

Finals Update: The Voice (+0.1) and Princess Diana: Her Life (+0.1) adjusted up. Jane the Virgin (-0.1) adjusted down.
