Ratings Report: Reality TV Domination

by at . Comments

The two biggest reality shows on TV aired last night, though ABC was keen enough to hold off on the second After the Final Rose Ceremony until American Idol was off the air.

The latter ended up about even with last week's performance show: 24.2 million viewers last night, compared to 24.5 million last Thursday.

Meanwhile, people might wish perpetual pain on Jason Mesnick, but they still wanna see him on television as The Bachelor: 10.9 million people watched Mesnicl and Molly Malaney update fans on their romance.
