ABC might have only aired a reunion special of The Bachelor last week instead of an original episode of Bob Guiney's reality dating saga, but viewers didn't seem to mind, as the network's The Bachelor: The Women Tell All special drew only 1.1 million fewer viewers than the previous week's penultimate episode and still won its timeslot in the Adults 18-49 demographic.
According to the final primetime ratings the week of November 10-16, 2003, The Bachelor: The Women Tell All special drew 12.4 million total viewers (versus the penultimate episode's 13.5 million) and beat its closest timeslot competition (CBS' sitcom block) by 44% in the all-important Adults 18-49 demographic, 5.6/14 to 3.9/10.
The Bachelor: The Women Tell All ranked as the No. 1 television program of the evening among Women 18-34 (8.5/21) and Women 18-49 (8.2/18) and tied with NBC's Law & Order for the night's top-ranked program among Adults 18-34 (5.5/16).
Compared to last season's The Women Tell All special for Andrew Firestone, The Bachelor: The Women Tell All for Bob Guiney was up by 2.3 million viewers (12.4 million vs. 10.1 million) and by 19% in Adults 18-49 (5.6/14 vs. 4.7/11).
