“The Bachelor” Colton Underwood did a lot of crying Monday night, but ABC isn’t weeping this morning.

Part 1 of the hit dating competition’s latest season finale was steady with last year’s comparable episode in the key demo’s ratings, and the hours even ticked up a bit in overall audience size. Plus, “The Bachelor” was the highest-rated show on TV last night, beating even “The Voice” blind auditions in the main demographic.

The NBC singing competition was primetime’s most-watched show, however.

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.9 rating/8 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 7.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Bachelor” from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. posted a 2.2/10 and 8 million viewers.
