Ratings: Debut of ‘Bachelor’ Spinoff ‘Listen to Your Heart’ Doesn’t Score ‘Bachelor’-Like Numbers

NBC and Fox tie for first in Monday primetime

The series premiere of “The Bachelor” spinoff “Listen to Your Heart” didn’t woo viewers on Monday, settling for numbers that don’t compare to those typical of its long-running parent series, according to initial data from Nielsen.

Not only did the debut of “The Bachelor” offshoot (full title “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart”) not stack up against “The Bachelor” itself, it also couldn’t top some stiff primetime competition last night, including “The Voice” on NBC and a new episode of “9-1-1” and a TMZ-produced “Tiger King” special on Fox.

NBC and Fox tied for first in ratings, both with a 1.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary numbers. NBC was first in total viewers with an average of 8.1 million and Fox was third with 5.6 million.

For NBC, “The Voice,” airing from 8-10 p.m., scored a 1.6/7 and 9.8 million viewers. At 10, the Season 2 premiere of “Songland” received a 0.9/4 and 4.7 million viewers.

For Fox, “9-1-1” at 8 p.m. earned a 1.5/7 and 7.4 million viewers. At 9, “TMZ Investigates: Tiger King – What Really Went Down?” landed a 1.1/5 and 3.9 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.7 and second in viewers with 6.7 million. At 8 p.m., “The Neighborhood” got a 1.0/5 and 7.2 million viewers. “Bob Hearts Abishola” at 8:30 had a 0.8/4 and 6.7 million viewers. At 9, “All Rise” managed a 0.6/3 and 6 million viewers. At 10, “Bull” ended the night with a 0.7/3 and 7.3 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6 and in viewers with 2.9 million. From 8-10 p.m., the series premiere of “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” received a 0.7/3 and 3 million viewers. At 10, new drama “The Baker and the Beauty” debuted to a 0.5/3 and 2.6 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/3 and in viewers with 1.7 million.

Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.3/2 and in viewers with 1 million.
