The ABC show has now expanded its audience for three consecutive weeks.
For the second consecutive week, The Bachelor recorded 18–49 in total viewers and adults for ABC on Monday. A 911 crossover helped half of the franchise more than the other and The Rachel Madavao Show.
And Tucker Carlson Tonight once again topped the cable viewership rankings.
The Bachelor gave a 1.47 rating to the 18–49 demographic and 5.49 million viewers among adults, up from 1.46 and 5.25 million last week and a season-high in both measures. After dipping into subsequent episodes of its season premiere, the show has expanded its audience for three consecutive weeks.
Two of Fox’s 911 shows staged their first crossover, with the spinoff 911: Lone Star getting a big bump as a result. It hit a season-high with 6.14 million in total viewers but was down 18–49 with a 0.84 rating week over week for adults. 911 was down slightly in both viewers (977 million, 7.21 million last week) and 18-49 demos (1.02 vs. 1.24 a week ago).
NBC’s game show lineup improved viewership slightly, as Ellen’s Game of Games (3.33 million) was stable and Wall (3.26 million) and Weak Link (3.11 million) were both up. Gameplay came down somewhat in adults 18–49 (0.58 from 0.58 last week), but the other two shows corresponded to their final outing (0.58 for Wall, 0.55 for Weak Link). All of CW’s Americans came down, with the demo earning 0.23 and 662,000 viewers.
On cable, MSNBC’s Rachel Madavo Show (3.71 million viewers) gave Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight (3.6 million) the most viewers; MSNBC also led primetime with an average of 3.06 million. WWE Monday Night Raw led the USA to an 18–49 ranking with a 0.58 rating in its three hours.
