ABC’s prime-time lineup hit season-low numbers Monday, according to Nielsen overnights cited by TVbytheNumbers.com. The network’s two-hour “The Bachelorette” pulled in a 2.2 average rating in the key demo of adults 18-49, while “The Glass House” managed only a 1.0 — equaling last week’s season low.

For “The Bachelorette” it was a season low, not counting holiday broadcasts, and was off three-tenths of a ratings point from a week ago.

ABC still finished second to Fox for prime time overall. Fox came in with a 2.6 average rating in 18-49, ahead of ABC (1.8 average), Univision (1.5), NBC (1.4) and an all-repeat lineup on CBS (1.1). Fox also won total viewers for the night, averaging 6.3 million to ABC’s 5.6 million, CBS’s 4.9 million, Univision’s 3.9 million and NBC’s 3.8 million.

Fox’s food-reality shows “Hell’s Kitchen” and “MasterChef” both delivered 2.6 averages in viewers 18-49, tying for top show of the night.

NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” bounced back from last week’s series low, up three-tenths to a 1.7 in 18-49, while “Fear Factor” rose one-tenth to a 1.5.
