Ratings: Tayshia Adams’ 1st Full ‘Bachelorette’ Episode Rises 23% From Clare Crawley’s Season Premiere

Tayshia Adams formally took over as the new star of “The Bachelorette” Season 16 Tuesday and brought a boost in ratings with her.

Last night, “The Bachelorette” scored a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.1 million total viewers.
