Last summer, ABC expanded Bachelor in Paradise and began airing it two nights a week. The series did well enough in the ratings for them to try it again. Will this summer series continue to perform for the network? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a fourth 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 a television show. This time around, the participants include Jared Haibon, Emily Ferguson, Haley Ferguson, Leah Block, Lace Morris, Amanda Stanton, Jubilee Sharpe, Sarah Herron, Carly Waddell, Isabel “Izzy” Goodkind, Chad Johnson, Daniel Maguire, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Nick Viall, and Vinny Ventiera.
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.
