ABC aired the first part of its summer stroll down Bachelor Nation memory lane, however, a much smaller audience than is usual for “The Bachelor” tuned in to watch.

The premiere of “The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!” scored a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49 and drew 2.4 million total viewers. Compared with the lowest scored of the most recent season of “The Bachelor” (a 1.3 rating and 5.1 million viewers), those numbers don’t look so good, but they do aline more closely with the other “Bachelor” spinoff series “Listen to Your Heart,” which averaged a 0.6 rating and 2.8 million viewers throughout its run. Usually this time of year ABC would be airing “The Bachelorette,” but due to the coronavirus production shutdown that is obviously not the case. For further comparison, the previous season of “Bachelorette” scored a 1.5 rating and 5.8 million viewers on averaged.
