TV Ratings 6/12/17: Superhuman Flops, SYTYCD Mostly Steady with 2016 Debut, Spartan and Ninja Warrior Do OK (UPDATED)


Monday night was dominated by the NBA, and nothing could even tough it. Just one non-NBC program was above a 1.0 last night and that would be American Ninja Warrior. Speaking of ANW, it had a pretty meh premiere, down three tenths from last year's debut and coming in about 0.35 below last year's average. It's not a horrible start, but NBC was likely hoping for better. The same can likely be said about Spartan, which had its second season debut at 0.9. This is on par with its finale, and a tenth and a half below its first-season average. The only caveat here is that the 0.9 came without any primetime lead-in. It had two post-Ninja Warrior episodes last year that came in at 1.5 and 1.4. Fox also had reality premieres, and it went similarly meh for them. So You Think You Can Dance did okay by its standards, down a tenth from last year and well above last season's average. Superhuman did pretty badly, down five tenths from its one-time special way back in January 2016. It continued Fox's summer rough streak as of late, joining American Grit and the F Word in the well below 1.0 crowd. On the CW, Whose Line Is It Anyway and everything else was at 0.3. CBS had repeats that ranged from 0.5 to 0.7. ABC had the huge Game 5 of the NBA Finals, a game which turned out to be the final one of the season. It brought in a massive 7.5, down just a tenth from the FINAL rating for last year's game 5. It should end up well above 2016's 7.6 in the finals. Jimmy Kimmel Live and NBA Countdown continued to be very inflated and will come down a ton in the finals.
