Although ABC has yet to announce a potential second season for “The Golden Bachelor,” the season one finale of the newest iteration in “The Bachelor” franchise was not only the show’s largest audience to date but also attracted the biggest audience for a “Bachelor” series since March 2020.

Airing Thursday, November 30, the finale of “The Golden Bachelor” delivered series highs in both Total Viewers (6.95 million) and Adults 18-49 (0.95 rating) in the National Live+3 day numbers. In fact, “The Golden Bachelor” scored the biggest audience (6.95 million) for any series in “The Bachelor” franchise (i.e., “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette,” “Bachelor in Paradise”) since March 2020 and the highest-rated telecast since September 2022 in Adults 18-49 (0.95 rating) — since 03/10/20 and 09/20/22, respectively.

“The Golden Bachelor” grew over the prior week by +12% in Total Viewers (6.95 million vs. 6.18 million), building for the 6th straight week and posting its biggest week-to-week gain.

After three days of viewing on linear and streaming platforms, ABC’s “The Golden Bachelor” season finale soared to 8.81 million Total Viewers, marking the most-watched multiplatform telecast for any series in “The Bachelor” franchise since March 2020 — since 03/10/20. In addition, “The Golden Bachelor” jumped to a 1.84 rating in Adults 18-49 after three days of cross-platform viewing to deliver its highest-rated multiplatform telecast since its September series debut — since 09/28/23.
