TV Ratings Report: Did The Bachelor Beat Celebrity Apprentice?

at .  Updated at . Comments

The Bachelor emerged victorious in the battle of the reality shows on Monday night. 

ABC: The Bachelor (6.6 million/2.2 rating) kicked off Season 21 down 13 percent in total viewers, steady in the 18-49 demo. This is still a very respectable figure, but it's clear some people were not impressed with Nick Viall as the suitor. 

The Bachelor mania continued with a Jimmy Kimmel (3.6 million/1.1 rating) special, which did not get much traction. 

NBC: A revamped Celebrity Apprentice (4.9 million viewers/1.3 rating) launched with almost half of what the final Donald Trump hosted season launched with. 

After that, The Wall (4.5 million/1.2 rating) slid down, but it had solid retention out of Celebrity Apprentice. 

CBS: Kevin Can Wait (7.3 million/1.4 rating), The Odd Couple (5.3 million/1.0 rating) and Scorpion (7.2 million/1.2 rating) were steady, while Man With a Plan (6.5 million/1.2 rating) and Two Broke Girls (5.8 million/1.3 rating) picked up steam. 

Fox: Masterchef Celebrity Showdown (2.9 million/0.9 rating) launched lower than what both Lucifer and Gotham have been doing on the night this season. 

The CW: iHeartRadio Music Festival (0.9 million/0.3 rating) was on the menu.
