ABC Moves Bachelorette Finale to New Night, Adds Live After the Final Rose Special
Monday night, The Bachelorette finale has no rose for you.
ABC has moved the reality dating show’s season ender from its regular Monday timeslot to Sunday, July 22 at 8/7c, EW.com reports.
The moment of truth will be followed by an After the Final Rose special at 10 pm, which will be broadcast live for the first time in seven years.
The scheduling change pits The Bachelorette against the series premiere of 3, CBS’ new dating show about three single gals united in their quest to find love. As EW suggests, the move is likely payback for CBS’ legal actions regarding ABC’s The Glass House, which CBS claims is far too similar to its Big Brother for comfort.
