bachelorette-premiere-ratings-may-23-16

The week of May 23-29 bridged the end of the regular Nielsen season and the start of summer, and the Live +3 ratings reflect it.

“The Bachelorette” leads the adults 18-49 chart, but only with a 2.7 rating — well below the low to mid-5s “Empire” and “The Big Bang Theory” were putting up in the spring.

The finale of “Blindspot” had the biggest three-day gains, growing by 0.9 in adults 18-49 (1.3 to 2.2) and a shade over 3 million viewers.
