ABC was the network to beat in the key demographics last night, as the network averaged 7.49 million viewers and a 2.4 18-49 adults demo for its three-hour line-up of its reality series. FOX was next with a 1.6 demo, but fourth overall in total viewers with 4.05 million viewers. CBS and NBC tied with a 1.3 demo, with NBC getting the edge in total viewers — 5.68 million for the latter and 5.22 million for the former. The CW was last with 596,000 viewers and just a 0.2 demo.

ABC aired a two-hour edition of The Bachelorette, drawing 7.74 million and a 2.3 demo in its initial hour and increasing to 8.34 million and a 2.7 demo in the second hour.
