As Emily Maynard gets closer to making her final decision, ABC’s The Bachelorette rose in the ratings Monday night.

Last night’s hometown dates episode (7.4 million viewers, 2.5 adults 18-49 rating) was up 9 percent in the demo from last week (Kristen Baldwin’s recap here). The rise helped boost 10 p.m.’s comparatively unloved The Glass House (3.3 million, 1.2) by the same percentage. (And you heard our big news yesterday about The Bachelorette finale, right?).

Fox had Hell’s Kitchen (5.8 million, 2.4), steady, and Masterchef (5.4 million, 2.3), up a tick. NBC aired the U.S. Olympic Trials (7.6 million, 1.8) followed by the first live show of America’s Got Talent (7.5 million, 2.9), both in line with last week.
