Bachelor Ratings Win the Night Over AGT by a Wide Margin

THE BACHELOR - "2403" - The "Champagne-gate" controversy continues to bubble and fizz as Hannah Ann and Kelsey attempt to try and bury the hatchet but only succeed in making matters worse. Meanwhile, Peter concentrates on having fun, going country line dancing with one smitten kitten, Victoria P., and Demi Burnett masterminds an "Extreme Pillow Fight Club" group date that sends feathers flying. However, Peter needs to confront his fear of falling for someone whose feelings aren't genuine early on and struggles with his rose decisions on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, JAN. 20 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.

Last week, The Bachelor and America’s Got Talent: The Champions took a hit against the college football championship that aired on ESPN.

With the competition out of the way, both shows saw ratings increases. The Bachelor  rose 3/10ths of a point, from a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 5.37 million viewers last week to a healthy 1.9 in the demo and 6.22 million viewers this week.

America’s Got Talent: The Champions bumped up from a 1.0 rating in the demo and 6.52 million viewers to a 1.1 and 6.97 million viewers.  AGT’s numbers are still way below last season, where the rating never fell below a 1.6. The Bachelor beat AGT this week by 8/10ths of a point. Wow.
