    “Opposite big competition from CBS’ Grammy Awards and NBC’s 2014 NFL Pro Bowl from 8-10pm.”

    ABC – your choice to air this program against “big competition.” Get over it and stop whining when your programs get a 1.6.

    @DenverDean

    I think they purposely aired the wedding special on a night they knew they could not win

    Why is this show so popular? The Bachelor and Bachelorette proves that people are willing to humiliate themselves for money
