Over 30 million viewers tune in to 'The Bachelorette' series finale

By Reality TV World staff, 02/20/2003 

ABC reports that with Trista Rehn choosing Colorado fireman Ryan Sutter, the season finale for the "The Bachelorette" dominated its time period. Opposite stiff competition from Fox's "That 70's Show," followed by 90-minutes of "American Idol," "The Bachelorette" led its 2-hour time period by 3.7 million viewers (20.4 million vs. 16.7 million) and by 18% among Adults 18-49 (9.2/20 vs. 7.8/19). "The Bachelorette" stood as the most-watched program of the night and the top draw among Adults 18-49. ABC estimates that 30 million viewers tuned in to watch at least some portion of the season finale for "The Bachelorette."

The season finale for "The Bachelorette" attracted ABC's largest non-sports audience and highest Adult 18-49 rating in the 2-hour time period in well over 2-1/2 years - since 5/24/00 with the farewell episode of Michael J. Fox on the season finale of "Spin City." Additionally, "The Bachelorette" delivered the Net's highest non-sports Adult 18-34 rating in the time slot in nearly 4 years - since the 3/3/99 with Barbara Walters' interview with Monica Lewinsky.
