ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise put a ring on Season 3 Tuesday night with 5.6 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, rising 12 percent and two tenths week-to-week to score the series’ second-best numbers ever.
Leading out of that, After Paradise (4 mil/1.1) was up 18 percent and two tenths. The yet-to-be-renewed Mistresses (2.6 mil/0.6) ticked up from its Monday numbers, matching its previous season finale; readers gave the season (series?) ender an average grade of “B-.”
Elsewhere on the night….
NBC | America’s Got Talent (11.7 mil/2.4) slipped yet still easily led Tuesday on both counts. Better Late Than Never (7 mil/1.6) was steady for a second straight week.
CBS | Zoo’s double-episode finale did 4.7 mil/0.8 (tying its season high in the demo) and then 3.8 mil/0.6 (matching its demo low). Averaged out, the already renewed drama matched its week-ago rating yet but down 12 and 22 percent from its freshman finale. Readers gave the finale an average grade of “B+.”
THE CW | MADtv (700K/0.2) dipped a precious tenth.
