‘The Bachelor’ season opener rules among women 18-34
According to an ABC press release, last night’s season opener of “The Bachelor” ranked No. 1 in its time slot (8-10 p.m.) among its core audience of women aged 18-34.
The program attracted 7.7 million viewers. That was down from last year’s season opener, which had 9 million viewers.
The two-hour segment also ranked “a competitive No. 2 to CBS’ first-run comedy block in viewers and young adults” and “took full control of NBC’s unscripted programming…leading by 2.0 million viewers.”
Another ABC press release reveals what will happen in the next episode, set to air next Monday, 8-10:01 p.m. The whole Bachelor gang comes to Sonoma:
“Episode 1602” – The 18 remaining bachelorettes travel to the lush vineyards of Ben’s hometown of Sonoma, California. Two lucky women – Kacie B. and Courtney –will get romantic one-on-one dates, but will it further their chances of being Ben’s dream woman, or will they be sent home? The group date will give 12 bachelorettes an unusual opportunity to show Ben another side of their personalities as they audition and perform roles for a community theater production – written entirely by children. However, it doesn’t take long for the women to get under each other’s skin and ramp up the drama, ending in uncontrollable tears for some of the bachelorettes, on “The Bachelor.”
