Despite Juan Pablo’s recently revealed and widely condemned statements against gays, ABC’s The Bachelor held steady in the ratings this week, drawing 7.8 million total viewers and a 2.3 demo rating.
Leading out of that, Castle (8.9 mil/2.0) ticked up a tenth in the demo.
Over on NBC, a double helping of Hollywood Game Night averaged 4.5 mil and 1.4 rating, down sharply from American Ninja Warrior’s week-ago performance (5.5 mil/1.9 but up from HGN’s holiday outing. The Blacklist (8.7 mil/2.3) in turn slipped 7 percent and two tenths, to a new demo low.
Sleepy Hollow‘s double-episode season finale on Fox averaged 6.9 mil and a 2.3, up 6 percent in audience and ticking up a tenth in the demo.
CBS’ How I Met Your Mother (8.8 mil/3.0) and 2 Broke Girls (8.9 mil/2.7) were steady, while Mike & Molly (8.8 mil/2.1) and Mom (8.1 mil/2.1) both shed some viewers and dropped three tenths in the demo. Intelligence slipped another 10 percent and a tenth, to 5.6 mil/1.1.
Numbers for The CW’s Hart of Dixie (1.2 mil/0.4, down a tenth) and Beauty and the Beast (930K/0.4, currently up a tenth) are subject to change due to NBA preemptions.
