Thursday TV Ratings 9/28/23: The Golden Bachelor Starts Strong and Leads the Night, Bachelor in Paradise and LEGO Masters Return to Lows, Big Brother Drops in Timeslot Shift (Final Ratings)

Ratings Analysis: 'The Golden Bachelor' had an incredibly successful launch on ABC, topping the night in both the Adults 18-49 demographic (0.63) and in total viewers (4.36 million). 'Bachelor in Paradise' (0.38) was not nearly as strong at 9 p.m. and lost out to CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.53, -0.12). 'Brother' was down by more than a tenth from last week but also had a lousy lead-in from 'Buddy Games' (0.23, -0.04). 'The Challenge: USA' (0.24, -0.01) shed a hundredth at 10. On Fox, 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.29) and 'LEGO Masters' (0.24) had particularly lackluster starts to the season, with 'Masters' setting a new low. NBC got decent mileage out of the 'People's Choice Country Awards' (0.31), but those viewers did not stick around for a pilot encore of 'The Irrational' (0.15). 'Fight to Survive' (0.05, +0.03) was up significantly for its finale on the CW. 'FBoy Island' (0.04, +0.02) grew by two-hundredths in the 9 p.m. time slot.
