Ten’s The Bachelor wins across the demos

Ten’s The Bachelor pulled in 777,000 metro viewers at 7:30pm last night, up from last week’s audience of 742,000.

The reality show was the most-watched show across the key advertising demographics (16-39, 18-49 and 25-54); however, it missed out on the title of most-watched non-news program to Seven’s Rio 2016 Olympics wrap-up, In Rio Today.
