hells kitchen aug 20 ratings TV ratings: 'Hell's Kitchen' leads Monday for FOX as 'Grimm' slips a littleFast National ratings for Monday, Aug. 20, 2012

“Hell’s Kitchen” trimmed the field to its final four chefs Monday and also racked up the night’s biggest audience on broadcast TV — even though it was down from last week. NBC’s “Grimm,” meanwhile, dipped some in its second episode of the season, and “Stars Earn Stripes” was also down.

Elsewhere, “Bachelor Pad” improved a little for ABC compared to last week, but few people cared to see who won “The Glass House.”

FOX averaged 5.7 million viewers and a 3.3 rating/5 share in households Monday night, beating out CBS (5 million, 3.3/5). NBC’s 4.4 million viewers and 2.7/4 was good for third, while ABC (4.1 million, 2.9/5) came in fourth. The CW drew a little over half a million people and a 0.4/1.

FOX scored a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49, leading the rest of the field by a full point. There was a three-way tie for second as ABC, CBS and NBC all posted a 1.3. The CW trailed with a 0.2.
