TV Ratings: Monday August 31, 2020

NBC's 'American Ninja Warrior' led the Monday cable ratings in the key adults 18-49 demo (0.5 rating) and in adults 25-54 (0.9); it tied CBS's 'Love Island' for the 18-34 victory (0.3) and ranked second behind a rerun of 'The Neighborhood' (CBS) in total viewers (3.446 million vs. 3.486 million). 'Love Island' was the sole original airing on CBS and performed OK with a 0.3 18-49 rating and 1.578 million viewers though was down from its lead-in rerun of 'Young Sheldon' (0.4, 3.1 million). Elsewhere, FOX aired the 2015 film 'Love the Coopers' to moderate fanfare (0.3, 1.18 million) and ABC was new with another 'Bachelor: Greatest Seasons' spec (0.2, 1.508 million). Finally, the CW's line-up of 'Whose Line is it Anyway' (0.2, 885,000) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1, 917,000) showed some signs of life.

Over on cable, Rockets/Thunder 'NBA Playoffs' coverage on TNT easily led the day in adults 18-49 (1.19 rating), men 18-49 (1.76), adults 18-34 (0.99), and males 12-34 (1.26). It was also highest-ranked program among adults 25-54 (1.25) and ranked second among non-news programming in total viewers (2.8 million) behind TLC's '90 Day Fiance: Other Way' (3.0 million). The other big game, Heat/Bucks, was at 1.39 in M18-49, 1.13 in M12-34, and 0.88 in A18-34 with 2.4 million viewers.

Other top performers in M18-49 were NBC Sports Nets's airing of the 'NHL Playoffs' between the Bruins & Lightning (0.62), and three hours of USA Network's 'WWE Entertainment' (0.82/0.76/0.70). 

TLC's line-up delivered among women 18-49 with '90 Day Fiance: Other Way' on top (1.04) and both 'Pillow Talk' (0.59) and 'Strikes Back' (0.56) each getting a little more than half that. 'Below Deck Mediterranean,' on Bravo, also did well, scoring a 0.81.
