CBS has done well in the ratings with their Big Brother series, airing it three times a week. Now, ABC is airing their Bachelor in Paradise TV show twice a week — plus the Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise “after-show”. Will it also be a success? Will this reality series be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned!
Hosted by Chris Harrison, Bachelor in Paradise brings previous contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette together under one roof as they try to win a big cash prize — and maybe even finally find true love on television. This time around, the participants include Jillian Anderson, Dan Cox, Clare Crawley, Kirk DeWindt, Jared Haibon, Jonathan Holloway, Ashley Iaconetti, Lauren Iaconetti, Juelia Kinney, JJ Lane III, Tenley Molzahn, Jade Roper, Ashley Salter, Mikey Tenerelli, Tanner Tolbert, and Carly Waddell.
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 — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
For comparisons: The first season of Bachelor in Paradise (which aired on Mondays) averaged a 1.37 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.14 million 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. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
