Monday Ratings: The Bachelor Hits a Finale Low, 24: Legacy Rises

Our long numerical nightmare is over.

Following an extended delay caused by a weekend power outage at one of its data centers, Nielsen releasing the TV ratings for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night. TVLine will be posting each day’s batch separately as they trickle in — and frankly, for my own sanity I likely won’t bother with many sitcoms or stationary shows — so grab a pint of Zakarian Ale and sit back….

ABC | The Bachelor drew 8.4 million total viewers and a 2.7 demo rating, rising 18 and 23 percent week-to-week (to season highs), but down 12 and 7 percent year-over-year to mark lows for a finale. After the Final Rose retained 7.8 mil/2.4.

NBC | The Voice (12.2 mil/2.6) dipped a tenth in the demo week-to-week, while Taken (5.7 mil/1.2) held steady in Week 3.

FOX | 24: Legacy (3.9 mil/1.0) rose two tenths, while APB (3.3 mil/0.7) dipped.

CBS | Scorpion (6.6 mil/1.1) ticked down, tying its series low in the demo.
