Monday Final Nationals: ‘The Bachelorette’ Season Premiere on ABC Down Ten Percent Among Adults 18-49 from Last Year

The performance finale of the 14th season of “The Voice” helped put NBC on top Monday night among total viewers (7.64 million) and adults 25-54 (2.2 rating/7 share).

The 13th season premiere of “The Bachelorette” featuring Rachel Lindsay was the main factor of ABC winning the night’s demos of adults 18-49 (1.8/7) and adults 18-34 (1.6/8). Compared to the year-ago 12th premiere (JoJo Fletcher on May 23, 2016), “The Bachelorette” was down 15 percent in total viewers (5.66 million vs. 6.63 million) and down 10 percent in adults 18-49 rating (1.8 vs. 2.0).

  1. Great Numbers for SG. I knew it skewed more male. Mon-El in his superhero suit will likely help it get even more male viewers next season

      • Yeah lol But i think they will go with Lar Gand in the show when he finally puts on the suit to honor his father on the show
