The Bachelorette viewers will have to wait a little longer for Desiree Hartsock's season to debut.

ABC has announced the ninth-season premiere of The Bachelorette has been pushed back a week. While it was initially scheduled to air on May 20, Hartsock's edition of the reality dating show will now premiere on Monday, May 27 at 8PM ET/PT.

The network's new scripted series Motive will debut on May 20 instead of The Bachelorette following Dancing with the Stars' final sixteenth-season performance show. Motive will then move to Thursday nights beginning on May 23.
