    A few of you emailed me last week informing me that on Ben Higgins’ podcast with Nick, he mentioned that the “Bachelor” was taking two weeks off while “Winter Games” ran the weeks of Feb. 13th and 20th. According to Robert Mills, and what I’ve been told, that is inaccurate. A few weeks ago I wrote in this column I was confused when the “Bachelor” finale is going to be since “American Idol” is doing a 2 night, 4 hour premiere March 11th and 12th. The 12th would’ve been the natural end date for the “Bachelor” finale, but now we know it’s not. I was able to get the answer for you. This season will run as normal with a new episode every Monday night. Except, the “Women Tell All” will air FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd, with the finale airing Monday, March 5th – a regular 2 hr finale plus the 1 hour live ATFR. They’ve done a “Tell All” on a Sunday night before but never on a … Continue reading

    I think this was the 5th or 6th year in a row where the “Bachelor’s” second episode went up against the college football national championship game. It’s one I dread every year, but since I don’t get the episodes early, there’s nothing I can do. Thank god the Georgia/Bama first half was awful and I didn’t really miss much. Once the “Bachelor” ended, the second half was just beginning so that’s all I needed. I say it time and time again, but sports are the best reality show on television. So many ups and downs and twists and turns to last night’s game. Awesome. Felt bad for Georgia since it sucks to lose a game you were never trailing in until the last play. Gut punch to say the least. But they’ll be back, they’re very good and have the #1 recruiting class in the nation. I don’t think this was a once-every-30-years appearance for them. As for Bama, the beat goes on. Bench your starter who’s 24-2 … Continue reading

    You notice how zero people in the “Bachelor” front office were sending out tweets yesterday regarding “What a great premeire!” and “Thank you Bachelor Nation fans, you’re the best!” Well, there was a reason for that. There’s good and bad news on the ratings front when it comes to the premiere. The bad news is it was the lowest rated premiere in the show’s history with 5.5 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. The good news is that it’s probably because it went up against the two semifinal college football games, and ratings were down across the board. If I remember correctly, the premiere has never had to go up against college football, it’s always been the second episode every season that competes against the national championship game. So expect next week’s ratings to be pretty much the same, if not lower going up against Alabama/Georgia. Certainly for Not Peter fans, who probably love me now for pointing out this fact, they will scream at … Continue reading
