Monday TV Ratings 1/4/21: The Hustler Starts Low Behind Weaker The Bachelor, Game of Games Fails to Improve (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Following a ten-month hiatus, The Bachelor' (1.2) was back in action on ABC. The reality juggernaut was the night's top broadcast by a sizable amount but trailed the 1.9 A18-49 rating it posted for its year-ago debut. At 10, the series premiere of 'The Hustler' (0.5) failed to make any significant noise. NBC's 'Ellen's Game of Games' (0.6/0.5) was on-par with where it left off three months ago but remained a shadow of its former self. The DeGeneres game show led into the premiere of 'The Wall' (0.5), the latter inched down from its March 2020 start (0.6). Over on CBS, 'The Neighborhood' (0.7), 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.6), 'All Rise' (0.5), and 'Bull' (0.5) all picked up a tenth when compared to their last showings. Fox aired the series finale of 'LA's Finest' (0.3) and a 'Masked Dancer' encore (0.2). The CW had repeats of 'Whose Line' (0.1/0.1) and 'Penn & Teller' (0.1).

Finals Update: 'The Bachelor' (+0.1), 'The Neighborhood' (+0.1), both episodes of 'Ellen's Game of Games' (+0.1, +0.1), and the repeat of 'The Masked Dancer' (+0.1) adjusted up.
