- FINALS UPDATE: The Stanley Cup Finals adjusted up to 1.4, still down 26% from last year's Game 1. Meanwhile, the NBA game on TNT got a simply staggering 6.40 demo rating. We're not even in the NBA Finals yet, but this was close to last year's NBA Finals opener (6.9) and actually beat most of the games from the 2014 Finals.
- Memorial Day is always rough for The Bachelorette (1.5/1.6), and this year was no exception as it went way below last week's 2.0 premiere. But this was still about on par with its year-ago Memorial Day rating, when it had 500 Questions as a lead-in. The news was worse at 10/9c as third-year summer drama Mistresses (0.7) made its return to Monday and held less than half of its lead-in. It did beat last year's series low, but was two tenths below last year's premiere.
- Fox brought back the decaying So You Think You Can Dance (1.0), which once again took a step down from last year's 1.3 premiere. Worth noting that the network held it till the week after Memorial Day last year, so it's possible that it could hold up better than usual from here. With its first look at the new lead-in, Houdini and Doyle (0.5) went down to a new low.
- NBC had Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals (1.2/1.1/1.2), which (like everything else on broadcast) got completely overrun by the massive NBA game on TNT. This NHL rating is going to be massively below the 1.9 that opened the Finals last year.
- CBS snuck in its final Monday original of Person of Interest (0.8), which dipped to a new low leading out of Scorpion repeats (0.6/0.7).
- A week after the return of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the CW sat it out on Memorial Day, instead opting to show timely theatrical Memorial Day (0.3/0.2).
