Ratings Analysis: ABC series 'The Golden Bachelor' (0.57, -0.06) remained a force in week two, even as it dealt with a post-premiere decline.

'Buddy Games' (0.32, +0.09) and 'Big Brother' (0.57, +0.04) climbed higher on CBS, while 'The Challenge: USA' (0.24, 0.00) held steady. Fox's 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.37, +0.08) improved greatly on its mediocre premiere, but 'LEGO Masters' (0.21, -0.03) only weakened some more. NBC re-ran 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.17), 'Found' (0.17), and 'Dateline' (0.24). 'FBoy Island' (0.05, +0.01) grew by a hundredth for its CW finale and led into a 'Whose Line' repeat' (0.04).
