The Bachelor Ratings: Climbing Fast!

by at . Comments

Ben Flajnik's season of The Bachelor is coming on strong after a slow ratings start.

The season launched to franchise-low ratings, but things are looking up after a steady dose of bikini skiing, cat fights and surprising, contrived plot twists.

Averaging 8.2 million overall viewers, and a 2.7 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, last night's episode marked a season high for the ABC guilty pleasure.

Four episodes in, Ben Flajnik's Bachelor is fast approaching Brad Womack's season a year ago. Just wait until we get to the good stuff a few weeks from now.
