TV Ratings Report: The Bachelor Slips, Still Tops Night

at .  Updated at .

The Bachelor has got to be a favorite over at ABC HQ. The show continues to deliver solid ratings after all these years on the air. 

ABC: The Bachelor slipped one tenth, but sophomore turkey, Quantico slipped a tenth vs. last week's fast national ratings.

ABC can try and make the Priyanka Chopra fronted series work as many times as they want, but the storylines this season are doing nothing to keep viewers intrigued. 

Retention of 35 percent from The Bachelor is downright embarrassing.

ABC would be wise to send the series back to Sundays and have Time After Time premiere earlier out of The Bachelor.
