Ratings are in from last night and they weren’t good.
Last week 7.1 million watched the show with a 1.9 in the 18-49 demo.
With that though means I’ll be back in CA this week, and Olivia and Nicholas will be joining me for the last half hour of Thursday’s live video chat. Remember last season when Lauren Solomon had previously been on three previous game shows, including “Minute to Win It?
Not that I’m having some sort of mid life crisis or anything, but time sure does fly.
As for the contestants, there’s supposedly 10 guys and 10 girls and here is most of your cast.
But hey, if ABC wants to cut out a major outlet like LA Times from covering their show, that’s their decision. I guess that’s what happens to reporters who don’t write about what people are wearing, kiss Robert Mills’ ass, or write fluff pieces. Now lets get to “Bachelor in Paradise.” Here is what I can tell you: -Filming will be in Tulum, Mexico.Nicholas even has his end of the year 1st grade school play I’ll be attending Thursday afternoon. I initially thought this may have been their way to honor Eric by taking a week off after his final episode aired (episode 4), but it looks to be because of the Clinton interview since they’d have 4 hours of programming with only 3 hours allotted time since “Mistresses” can’t be moved.Whatever the case, only episodes 3 and 4 are affected.Instead of running next Monday, episode 3 airs Sunday night.And instead of running on the 9th, episode 4 gets moved up a week and runs next Monday.Last night, that number dropped 30% to 5.7 million and 1.4 in the demo. Des’ season premiered on Memorial Day last year, and she drew 5.8 million viewers, so it’s consistent.I’m guessing once we’re back to consistent Monday episodes, the show will draw in the 6 million viewer range a week, which is fine for them.If you follow Twitter on Monday nights during the show, inevitably #bachelorette will be trending. I certainly do it, even though it makes my focus of taking notes and writing about the show a little more difficult.Well, producers of the show will also retweet some of their favorites.With no “Bachelorette” running on the 9th, the schedule plays out regularly the rest of the season with the finale airing the July 28th, and “Bachelor in Paradise” premiering the following Monday, August 4th.The date changes for episodes 3 & 4 have been updated in your episode-by-episode spoilers.
