A significant 879,000 metro viewers tuned in to a rather emotional Bachelor finale on Thursday night, which saw Locky Gilbert choose Irena Srbinovska over Bella Varelis, according to OzTAM numbers.
While Nine and Seven did beat 10 in primary channel share (18.1 per cent, 17.5 per cent and 17.2 per cent respectively), 10 did top key demos with 24.9 per cent in the 25-54 range, and 31.0 per cent in 16-39 range.
Network 10’s head of programming Daniel Monaghan said: “Locky’s search for love was a hit with Australians across all screens. The 2020 season of The Bachelor Australia dominated social media every time it went to air, recorded huge BVOD and live streaming numbers, and ranked #1 in its timeslot on broadcast TV.
