The numbers for Monday, January 23, 2022, are in, and it was another night of mixed returns.
The Bachelor Season 27 Episode 1 had 2.9 million viewers and a 0.6 rating, down quite a bit vs. last season’s premiere (3.5 million/0.8 rating).
With the trajectory of broadcast TV, the erosion is no surprise, but the venerable reality series typically bounces back as the season is airing.
The Good Doctor (3.2 million/0.3 rating) returned down a bit in total viewers, but it was steady as a rock in the demo.
Over on FOX, Alert had a best-since premiere 2 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the demo.
Before that, Fantasy Island reached a season high in total viewers, posting 2 million viewers and a 0.2 rating.
It was an up night for CBS.
NBC went with America’s Got Talent All-Stars (4.7 million/0.5 rating)
The CW’s All American (0.5 million/0.1 rating) and All American Homecoming (0.3 million/0.1 rating) were both on par with their fall results.
