Looks like The Bachelor fans just aren’t that into Ben Flajnik.
The ABC show’s ratings hit an all-time low Monday night with 7.2 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adult demo, according to Entertainment Weekly. That is 8 percent lower than last week’s premiere episode. To make things worse, CBS was airing repeats last night, so there should’ve been no real competition for The Bachelor.
Some blog readers are saying they believe the ratings could’ve been down because of Monday night’s BCS Championship game. Really? People who normally tune into The Bachelor are the same kind of people to catch a college football championship game? I’m not counting it out; I just find it interesting.
