Ratings: ‘The Bachelor’ Season Finale Grows From Last Year, Beats ‘This Is Us’

Fox settles for last place among Big 4 broadcasters with ”MasterChef Junior“ Season 7 premiere

Colton Underwood found love last night on the season finale of “The Bachelor,” and ABC found a Tuesday ratings win in the key demo.

Thanks to “NCIS,” CBS easily won primetime in total viewers.

From 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., Part 2 of the “Bachelor” finale posted a 2.3 rating/10 share among adults 18-49 and 8.062 million viewers. Last year’s comparable conclusion aired over three hours on Monday, March 5, 2018, averaging a 2.2 demo rating and 7.938 million total viewers. That elongated episode marked season-finale lows for the series, though a few “Bachelorette” season finales have done worse.
