Bachelor Pad Is Not Bachelorette
The season premieres of ABC's Bachelor Pad and Dating in the Dark did all right for ABC Monday night, but they did not draw audiences as large as those for The Bachelorette , which concluded last week. The two-hour Bachelor Pad averaged 6.3 million viewers, while the one-hour Dating in the Dark drew 4.5 million. While only the first hour of Bachelor Pad ranked No. 1 among total viewers, ABC ranked first in each half hour throughout the night among adults 18-49.
