Monday TV Ratings 3/15/21: America’s Most Wanted Premieres Low, The Bachelor Rises for Finale, The Neighborhood and Black Lightning Slip (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC's 'The Bachelor' (1.4) rose two-tenths for its finale, coming within striking distance of its season high (1.47). Despite that, the reality powerhouse was a full point below its year-ago closer (2.4). The alphabet network remained strong in the 10pm hour as the 'After the Final Rose' special (1.3) more than doubled the average 'Good Doctor' installment. On NBC, 'The Voice' (1.1) picked up a tenth, but 'Debris' (0.4) wasn't able to rise in week 3. CBS endured some minor slippage as 'The Neighborhood' (0.7) and 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.6) lost one-tenth apiece. 'All Rise' (0.4) and 'Bull' (0.4) held even from there. Over on Fox, the premiere of 'America's Most Wanted' (0.3) began in awful territory, losing a tenth from the '9-1-1' repeat (0.4) that came an hour earlier. The CW had a premiere of its own in the form of 'Bulletproof' (0.1). The drama posted the same rating it had garnered for every episode in the summer. 'Black Lightning' (0.1) inched down at 9.

Finals Update: The Bachelor (+0.1), After the Finale Rose (+0.1) and America's Most Wanted (+0.1) adjusted up.
