CBS reclaimed the top spot in Monday's ratings thanks to "Under the Dome," which was steady with its performance last week. There was less competition for the lead as ABC aired repeats from 8 to 10 p.m., with "Mistresses" falling from its recent numbers with a weaker lead-in.

"American Ninja Warrior" and "Get Out Alive" were down a little for NBC, but "Siberia" rose a bit in viewers and was steady in adults 18-49.

CBS scored 6.2 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/7 share in households for the night. ABC (3.9 million, 2.7/4) beat out NBC (3.5 million, 2.0/3) for second place. FOX came in fourth with 1.6 million viewers and a 1.1/2, and The CW (715,000, 0.5/1) trailed.

CBS also led the 18-49 demographic, albeit with just a 1.4 rating. NBC took second with a 1.1. ABC's 0.9 took third, followed by FOX, 0.7, and The CW, 0.2.
