TV Ratings: 'The Bachelor' Builds on Monday
Rebounding a bit from last week's football-fatigued Monday, ABC's The Bachelor was the biggest thing going among adults 18-49. The reality show outpaced CBS' Scorpion, averaging a 2.2 rating in the key demographic.
That's up two-tenths of a point from last week's showing, though companion series Bachelor Live is not retaining the crowd. The latest outing was down to a 0.9 rating with adults 18-49.
CBS' scripted block — Supergirl (1.8 adults), Scorpion (2.0 adults) and NCIS: Los Angeles (1.6 adults) — was largely steady with last week. And, on NBC, comedies Superstore (1.6 adults) and Telenovela (1.1 adults) were also on par with previous outings. The Biggest Loser averaged just a 1.0 rating in the key demo.
Special MasterChef Celebrity Showdown aired on Fox to the tune of a 1.5 rating with adults 18-49 and 4.1 million viewers.
