The Bachelor has been a ratings success for ABC, with the network bringing in $2.6 billion for the fourth season.
While the ratings haven’t been as strong as they once were, it’s still the most successful scripted series of all time.
This year’s season of Bachelor in Paradise, for instance, is the most-watched scripted series in network history.
Here are the 10 best seasons of Bachelor yet, according to ratings.
Bachelor in Paris, season 3, 2016ABC’s Bachelor in the Woods (CBS) (1.7 rating, 7 share)The third season of the Bachelor was a smash hit for ABC.
The first two seasons were canceled after one season.
However, season three was canceled after five seasons due to the death of host Chris Harrison.
That left season four to follow, which ended with a final kiss between Harrison and Bachelor in Miami, the season that led to his eventual resignation.
Bachelor Party, the ABC reality series featuring Harrison and his then-girlfriend Amber Portwood, was a big hit with viewers.
Season five, which aired in 2019, also led to Harrison’s resignation, and he left the show for a second time in 2019.
The show was renewed for a fourth season in 2019 and will return to ABC in 2021.
Bachelor-in-the-Tower, season 4, 2017ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (ABC) (2.4 rating, 9 share)It was another smash hit in the ratings for ABC with Dancing with Stars, which followed the season of Dancing in Wonderland with a few more twists and turns.
It ended up with more than 6.3 million viewers, and was the highest-rated episode of Dancing ever.
