The return of The Bachelor led ABC to overnight Monday victory with a 30 percent advantage over second-place NBC, which featured the time period premiere of The Biggest Loser and the series-premiere of drama Deception.
In the battle of The Bachelor versus The Biggest Loser, The Bachelor dominated with a 5.3 rating/8 share in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., which was right on par with the year-ago evening. The Biggest Loser finished a respectable second in three of the four half hours (excluding 9 p.m.), with a 4.3/ 6 from 8-10 p.m., which was virtually identical to last year’s Tuesday premiere (4.4/ 7 on 1/03/12). Compared to failed game show Who’s Still Standing? (3.6/ 5) and Fear Factor (3.5/ 5) on the year-ago evening, The Biggest Loser increased by 21 percent.
Keep in mind that both The Bachelor and The Biggest Loser faced encores of How I Met Your Mother (#3: 3.8/ 6), 2 Broke Girls (two episodes - 8:30 p.m.: #3, 3.6/ 6; 9 p.m. #2, 4.4/ 6) and Mike & Molly (#3, 4.3/ 6) from 8-10 p.m.
In series-premiere news, aforementioned Deception on NBC finished second at 10 p.m. with a 4.3/ 7 in the overnights. Comparably, this was a hefty 87 percent above year-ago time period occupant Rock Center With Brian Williams (2.3/ 4 on 1/09/12), but considerably below the 7.9/13 for the debut of prior time period occupant Revolution on 9/17/12 (out of a 9.2 rating for the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Voice). From a retention standpoint, however, 93 percent retention for Deception of the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Biggest Loser (4.7/ 7) was stronger than Revolution out of The Voice.
Castle on ABC won 10 p.m. hour with a 6.1/10, which was 11 percent above the 9:30 p.m. portion of The Bachelor (5.5/ 8). And a repeat of competing Hawaii Five-O on CBS finished third with a 3.6/ 6.
Elsewhere, Fox populated this first Monday in January with a repeat of Bones (#4: 2.9/ 4) and the series-finale of The Mob Doctor (#4: 2.5/ 4). And The CW aired encores of Hart of Dixie (#5: 0.6/ 1) and Beauty and the Beast (#5: 0.6/ 1). As a reminder, Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries debuts in the Monday 8 p.m. hour on The CW next week (into relocated 90210).
