'Bachelorette' tops broadcast entries
With “Ghost Whisperer” canceled, Jennifer Love Hewitt doesn’t have a series on the air, but she’s still a draw as evidenced by strong ratings for Lifetime original telepic “The Client List” on Monday night.
Movie, which co-starred Cybill Shepherd, drew 3.9 million viewers amid tough female-centric cable competish: Bravo offered “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” ABC Family ran “The Secret Life of an American Teenager,” while TNT had a double-bill of “The Closer” and freshman drama “Rizzoli and Isles.” Among femmes 18-34, “Teenager” fared best of the cable entries while “Client” was tops in women 18-49.
Even more of a draw was ABC’s two-hour edition of “The Bachelorette,” which drew nearly 11 million viewers and a season’s best 3.4 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demo. Combined with “True Beauty” at 10 p.m., the Alphabet easily won the night.
