May 26: TV viewership for this week’s “American Grit” show hosted by John Cena fell eight percent from last week’s episode.

Week 7 drew 1.82 million viewers in the overnight ratings reported by

Update: The final audience was 1.73 million viewers, following the weekly pattern of actual viewership lowering from the overnight.

It was the fewest viewers thus far, trailing 1.78 million viewers two weeks ago.

– The concern this week is that Grit’s lead-in, “Bones,” had a decent bump in viewership. Yet, that did not translate to Grit.

Because of the bump, Bones nearly ranked #2 in the 8:00 p.m. timeslot, but settled for a strong third place behind CBS and ABC.

Grit then fell to fourth place behind CBS, NBC’s “Red Nose Day” special, and ABC’s two-hour summer programming special.

Fox ranked #3 on Thursday night for the first time during Grit’s run, though that was mainly due to Bones’s bump. The final order was CBS, ABC, Fox, NBC, and CW.
