Ratings: Olympics takes ratings gold, 'The Bachelor' earns a solid silver

Posted on

NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics dominated television screens last night, according to preliminary overnight ratings. The Peacock network scored 25.5 million viewers on Monday night. Despite the Olympic onslaught, ABC’s The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love managed to hold onto much of its viewership with 11.5 million, a dip of only 800k from the previous week.
