For the second week in a row, The Bachelor recorded season highs in both total viewers and adults 18-49 for ABC on Monday. A 911 crossover helped one half of the franchise more than the other, and The Rachel Maddow Show and Tucker Carlson Tonight once again grabbed the top spots in the cable viewer rankings.
The Bachelor drew a 1.47 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 5.49 million viewers, up from 1.46 and 5.25 million last week and a season high in both measures. After dipping in the episode following its season premiere, the show has grown its audience for three consecutive weeks.
Fox’s two 911 shows staged their first crossover, with spinoff 911: Lone Star getting the greater bump as a result. It hit a season high in total viewers with 6.14 million but was down week to week in adults 18-49 with a 0.84 rating. 911 was down a bit in both viewers (6.77 million, vs. 7.21 million last week) and the 18-49 demo (1.02 vs. 1.24 a week ago).
NBC’s game show lineup improved a bit in viewers, as Ellen’s Game of Games (3.33 million) was steady and The Wall (3.26 million) and Weakest Link (3.11 million) were both up. Game of Games came down some in adults 18-49 (0.67 last week to 0.58), but the other two shows were consistent with their last outings (0.58 for The Wall, 0.55 for Weakest Link). The CW’s All American came down, earning a 0.23 in the demo and 662,000 viewers.
On cable, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show (3.71 million viewers) edged Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight (3.6 million) for the most viewers; MSNBC also led primetime with an average of 3.06 million. WWE Monday Night Raw led the 18-49 rankings with a 0.58 rating over its three hours on USA.
