The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have each run for many years and have been big moneymakers for ABC. Unfortunately, the Bachelor Pad spin-off only ran for two seasons before being discontinued. Now, they’re trying a similar spin-off — Bachelor in Paradise. Will this one get better ratings than the last? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned to find out.
On Bachelor in Paradise, handsome and beautiful former contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette return to try to find love on television once again. This time, they’ll all be living together in a private resort in Mexico. Their old friend Chris Harrison returns as host.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
Final season averages: 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.14 million total viewers.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
