Monday TV Ratings 8/28/23: Claim to Fame and Stars on Mars Rise for Finales, American Ninja Warrior Leads (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: With 'The Bachelorette' out of the way, ABC's 'Claim to Fame' (0.33, +0.10) was free to take back the 8 p.m. time slot that helped it grow in the early summer. As a result, the program shot up by a full tenth for its finale and posted its highest rating in over a month. ABC filled the 10 p.m. time slot with a rerun of 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.20). On Fox, 'Stars on Mars' (0.17, +0.02) grew by two-hundredths for its season (or possibly "series") finale and led into a repeat of 'MasterChef' (0.15). 'American Ninja Warrior' (0.44, +0.09) surged on NBC and was followed by a 'Weakest Link' encore (0.24). 'Son of a Critch' (0.06, +0.03) and 'Run the Burbs' (0.06, +0.03) climbed higher on the CW. 'Children Ruin Everything' (0.04, -0.02) and 'Bump' (0.03, -0.03) crumbled in the 9 p.m. hour. Reruns of 'NCIS' (0.24), 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.20), and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.24) made up CBS's night. 

Finals Update: 'Children Ruin Everything' (-0.1) and 'Bump' (-0.1) adjusted down.
