“The Bachelorette” season finale scored a dominant win in the Tuesday primetime ratings this week.
The ABC reality series easily led the night in the adults 18-49 demo, hitting new season highs for itself with a 2.1 rating and 7.44 million viewers. It was not only the highest-rated and most-watched “Bachelorette” episode of the season, but also its best broadcast in both measures since its 2017 season finale (2.1, 7.57 million).
A “Holey Moley” rerun followed “The Bachelorette” finale with a 0.6, coming second in the 10 p.m. hour. Together, the two broadcasts carried ABC to its best Tuesday night summer primetime performance (with regular programming) since June 2016.
Facing heavier competition than normal this week, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” took a big hit in the primetime ratings, falling from the 1.7 it scored last week to a series low 1.2 this time around. It was still, however, the night’s most-watched broadcast, with a season low 7.87 million viewer audience. Meanwhile, “Bring the Funny” similarly dropped two-tenths week-to-week, from its previous 0.9 to its first 0.7 of the season.
On CBS, both “Love Island” (0.4) and “Blood & Treasure” (0.3) matched their ratings from a week ago. The CW’s “Pandora” (0.1) and “The 100” (0.2) stayed similarly even with their last episodes.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.6/8||1.1/5||0.3/2||0.3/2||0.2/1|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
