While many ABC shows have declined in the ratings, last summer’s edition of The Bachelorette actually did better than the previous summer’s. Was it a fluke or will the numbers continue to rise? Cancelled or renewed for season 13? Stay tuned.
This time around on The Bachelorette, Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher from Dallas, a 25-year-old real estate developer, is the one looking for love among 26 men. Chris Harrison returns as the 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 — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

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.
