Good start for ‘Bachelor Pad’

Fox's cooking shows still top Monday in demos

ABC’s bid to extend the ”Bachelor” franchise deeper into summer is off to a good start, as Monday’s ”Bachelor Pad” was up vs. its series opener a year ago and the net finished second among young adults to Fox’s cooking contests.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the three-hour debut of ”Bachelor Pad,” in which former contestants of both ”The Bachelor” and ”The Bachelorette” share a house ala ”Big Brother,” averaged a 2.2 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.9 million viewers overall. It matched or set series highs in most categories, surging to the broadcast lead at 10, and was Monday’s No. 1 show in total viewers.

Fox won the night in demos, though, as ”Hell’s Kitchen” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall) matched its best demo score of the summer while hitting a high in total viewers. It then led into ”MasterChef” (2.3/6 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall), which was flat week to week and finished a tick behind ”Bachelor Pad” for the 18-49 lead in the 9 o’clock hour.

CBS hung in there with repeats of ”How I Met Your Mother” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall at 8 p.m. and 1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall at 8:30 p.m.), ”Two and a Half Men” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall), ”Mike and Molly” (1.3/3 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall) and ”Hawaii Five-0” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall).

And NBC didn’t do much with its two-hour encore of ”America’s Got Talent” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall), followed by a repeat of ”Harry’s Law” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox, 2.5/7; ABC, 2.2/6; Univision, 1.3/4; CBS, 1.2/3; NBC, 1.0/3; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: ABC, 6.9 million; Fox, 6.0 million; CBS, 4.6 million; NBC, 4.4 million; Univision, 3.2 million; CW, 0.6 million.
