ABC’S BACHELOR PAD LOSES OUT TO RIVALS’ RERUNS

A two-hour installment of ABC’s Bachelor Pad Monday night failed to produce anything like the overwhelming ratings of its predecessor, The Bachelorette. The show attracted an average of 5.4 million viewers between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., giving it a second-place finish. But Dating in the Dark, which followed, turned into a virtual blind date as many viewers tuned out, leaving the show with just 3.7 million viewers, to put it in last place for the hour. Despite a roster of repeats, CBS won the night easily, with Two and a Half Men ranked as the most-watched show of the evening with 8.3 million viewers. Overall, CBS drew a 4.7 rating and a 7 share. ABC was second with a 3.3/6. NBC placed third with a 3.2/5, while Fox trailed with a 2.6/4.
