Ratings for The Bachelorette, The Closer and More
The Bachelorette is looking good.
Some recent ratings highlights:
• With I'm a Celebrity waning, The Bachelorette surged 13 percent week-to-week on Monday night to average 7.2 million total viewers over its two-hour run. Here Come the Newlyweds (4.77 mil), however, dipped 5 percent.
• The Closer returned to an audience of 7.14 million, slipping just 8 percent from its Season 4 opener. Raising the Bar in turn kicked off its sophomore run with an audience nearly double (3.6 mil) its Season 1 finale.
• I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! delivered 5.19 mil, which was on par with its most recent outing but down 18 percent from its premiere a week ago. In fact, the reality series placed fourth during the 8 o'clock hour, then floated up to third at 9, squeaking past a Bones repeat.
• Sunday's Season 5 launch of The Next Food Network Star emerged as the-watched series premiere in Food Network history, serving 2.2 million viewers (a 16 percent increase over the competition's previous opener).
