FOX’s all Gordon Ramsay, all the time lineup of “Hotel Hell” and “Hell’s Kitchen” gave the network an across-the-board ratings win Monday night, with “Hotel Hell” improving a good amount on its numbers from last week.

NBC’s “Grimm” held fairly steady in its third Monday airing, dropping a little bit in viewers but maintaining its 18-49 rating from a week ago. “The L.A. Complex” posted some of its best numbers of the summer for The CW.

FOX brought in 6.45 million viewers and a 3.9 rating/6 share in households Monday, beating out CBS (5.7 million, 3.8/6) for the top spot. ABC (4 million, 3.8/5) edged NBC (3.95 million, 2.5/4) for third. The CW drew 761,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.

FOX’s lead in the adults 18-49 demographic was wider — its 2.6 rating was a point better than CBS’ 1.6. NBC finished third in the demo with a 1.2. ABC averaged 1.1 and The CW 0.3.
