Bachelor Nick Reveal Ratings

Ratings: Bachelor Nick Reveal Lifts After Paradise to Season Highs

The reveal of your unexpected 21st Bachelor, Nick Viall, lifted ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise to season highs of 3.5 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, up 25 and 29 percent week-to-week.

In a TVLine poll, 53 percent say they are “more excited” for Season 21 with two-time runner-up Nick on board.

Opening ABC’s night, Bachelor in Paradise “proper” was steady with 5 mil and a 1.4.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

NBC | America’s Got Talent (12 mil/2.6) rose to its best numbers since July 5 — or, in six Wednesday episodes (factoring in Olympics breaks). Better Late Than Never (7.5 mil/1.6) matched its premiere numbers.

CBS | Zoo (4.7 mil/0.7) ticked down.

THE CW | Pending adjustment due to (The CW’s last-ever?!) Chicago Cubs preemption, MADtv (1.07 mil/0.3) is currently up week-to-week.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!
