TV Ratings: ABC topped Monday night ratings

On a quiet night, reality series helped ABC to the nightly victory

With four networks airing reruns on Memorial Day, the latest installment of ABC's The Bachelorette (7.1 million, 2.1) sank double digits from last week’s season premiere.

The new summer reality series Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (7.1 million, 2.3) debuted at 10 p.m., up 28 percent from the premiere of True Beauty in the same time slot last summer. Extreme Makeover retained all of The Bachelorette’s audience — even drawing a higher rating in the key 18-49 demographic.

ABC swept total viewers and the demo, averaging 7.1 million and a 2.2.
