Bachelor Finale Ratings Win/Lose On Monday

| Filed under: TV NewsLove Line

The Bachelor Wins AND Loses

So another Bachelor finale has come and gone, leaving mixed feelings for those involved.

Not necessarily because of the final choice, no, but because of the ratings!

While it won the night in viewership against its competitors, the show has seen a staggering 15% plummet from last year's finale numbers!

Here's the gist:

The three-hour finale of lovelorn reality staple The Bachelor powered ABC to a win on Monday night averaging a 4.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 13.8 million viewers overall. But it is a statement on the broadcast competition that The Bachelor put ABC in lead despite posting its lowest finale ratings in almost three years and falling 15% compared to last spring’s season ender.

Oh, well, maybe if it wasn't a three hour finale??

That's a bit crazy, guys! Maybe it's time to refresh the show with some new ideas!

Let's help! What do U think could freshen up the Bachelor next time around??

    The show became too formulaic. There are no surprises anymore. Everyone seems scripted.

  2. 2

    Charlie Sheen as the Bachelor… and they Kill the Looser

  3. 3

    They really need to bring some other races into the mix. That would definitely bring more interest from a more diverse audience, and for those close minded people who watch the show, it would bring controversy, a great ratings booster. We need to bring diversity to shows like this!

    Oh and the Bachelor has to give up a Ball if he doesn't marry the Girl at the end

    Finale is too long. If I watch it at all I only watch the last half hour. Also don't repeat with the same bachelor. If viewers thought he was an immature jerk on the first one, it's highly unlikely they will watch him again.

    how about just shutting this shit down, I think America is over it! Soooo fake.

    i watched it…it was good-……I'll only give them ideas if they pay me $$$$ -call me ABC

    I didn't like this Bachelor the first time around. He seemed like such a jerk then. Then it's like they type-cast all the girls; the bitchy one, the weirdo, the ditzy one, the smart one, the virtuous one, the tramp…the actual success rate of these couples is so small. I think this franchise is going downhill (and if I hear the phrase "journey" anymore on these shows, I will vomit).

    And a 3 hour finale? I didn't even watch the 2 hour ones. Way too much. I quit watching the Bachelor after crybaby Jake picked the fame-whore.

    These relationships rarely work out because of the unrealistic dynamic. They need to spend more time with the contestants to get to better know them! I don't know, go through something rough together to see how they handle it. Less girls, more time, and more realistic scenarios.

    It would be awesome if I were on it!

    Make it more real, Real-life dates & dating. I think Emily on the Show didn't show her true colors [I thought this before the After the Final Rose] and I think this was true for many of the girls, and they need to focus on showing things that remind the public of parts with relationships they have been through, Also maybe give them more time on the show and cut out all that bull of going over things over and over again [Like talking about the dates — Show more]. [Might also help their success rate of couples] Also for the Bachelorette Make it BOTH Ashley's!

    I stopped watching this show years ago!

    He's so creepy looking.

  15. 15

    Perhaps getting a bachelor with a soul would be a step in the right direction

    this season of the bachelor is the most BORING season ever… maybe if they didn't drag the show on for 2 hours more people would tune in.. I find myself DVR'ing it.. and fast forwarding through the boring dribble brad spewed.. ESPECIALLY the part with the host.. 1 hour is all you really need my friend.

    The only way to improve the show is to cancel it. The stupid bachelor never marries the girl he picks anyway. So what is the point of the show? The show is just plain stupid. Cancel it!!
