Bachelor wins Wednesday ratings
Ratings: TEN's Bachelor finale tops the night with 1.19m for The Final Decision.
Despite some early weeks where the show could not survive in its timeslot, the network’s decision to stick with the show paid off by coming home with a wet sail. Social media for the show was also particularly strong and TEN has greenlit a second season for 2014.
The finale helped give TEN the kind of share it used to be getting with regularity, although the night belonged to Seven.
Seven network shares was 27.8% then Nine 25.6%, TEN 22.0%, ABC 18.6% and SBS 5.9%.
