Featuring the season opener of "Bachelor in Paradise" and series debut of "Castaways," ABC moved up to take 2nd place on Tuesday in Adults 18-49 (0.9/4) to an "America's Got Talent"-led NBC, while beating Fox's original lineup by 80% (0.5/2 for "Beat Shazam"/"Love Connection"). Trailing only NBC's "America's Got Talent" on the night, ABC's "Bachelor in Paradise" ranked as Tuesday's No. 2 TV show in Adults 18-49 and tied "AGT" as the No. 1 show with Women 18-34.

From 8:00-10:00 p.m. opposite NBC's "AGT," ABC's "Bachelor in Paradise" more than doubled Fox's unscripted combo of "Beat Shazam"/"Love Connection" in the 2-hour slot with Total Viewers (+111% - 3.8 million vs. 1.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (+120% - 1.1/5 vs. 0.5/2). "Bachelor in Paradise" held even with its year-ago Tuesday premiere in Adults 18-49 (1.1/5 on 8/15/17).

At 10:00 p.m., ABC's "Castaways" debuted to summer highs for ABC in the time period with Total Viewers (3.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (0.7/3). In fact with viewers and young adults, "Castaways" turned in ABC's strongest summertime (Memorial Day-Labor Day) entertainment numbers in the Tuesday 10 o'clock hour in more than 2 years - since 7/12/16.
