ABC's BACHELOR IN PARADISE Rises to Its Best Tuesday Numbers This Season

With "Bachelor in Paradise" and "Somewhere Between," ABC once again earned the No. 2 network position on Tuesday night in Adults 18-49 (1.0/4) to an "America's Got Talent"-led NBC. ABC spiked 25% week to week in Adults 18-49, delivering its top-rated Tuesday this summer. Trailing only NBC's "America's Got Talent" on the evening, ABC's "Bachelor in Paradise" ranked as Tuesday's No. 2 TV show in Adults 18-49 (tie), Adults 18-34 and across all key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54). In fact, "Bachelor in Paradise" came within 3-tenths of a rating point of catching "America's Got Talent" as the night's No. 1 show with Women 18-34.

"Bachelor in Paradise" (8:00-10:00 p.m. - 4.3 million and 1.2/5 in AD18-49):
From 8:00-10:00 p.m. opposite NBC's "America's Got Talent," ABC's "Bachelor in Paradise" rose week to week in Total Viewers (+13% - 4.3 million vs. 3.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (+9% - 1.2/5 vs. 1.1/4) to score Tuesday season highs for the show.

"Somewhere Between" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 1.8 million and 0.4/2 in AD18-49):
At 10:00 p.m., ABC's "Somewhere Between" held even with its week-ago Adults 18-49 rating (0.4/2), which was a Tuesday best. In addition, the ABC freshman drama delivered its most watched telecast on the night (1.8 million).
