“The Bachelorette” Without Chris Harrison, Week 2, Drops Another 11%, 18% in Key Age Group


“The Bachelorette” is not having a great summer.

ABC’s latest chapter of the idiotic dating show dropped 11% last night from last week in overall viewers, 18.37% in the key age demo.

The show is down to about 3.3 million fans who care what happens to these insipid people.

The participants are no different than in the past, but host Chris Harrison has been replaced by two bland women who were once in the competition.

Last night, Katie, the current Bachelorette, sent home one guy, then freaked out when another guy said the others were there “for the wrong reason.” Meaning, they were there for fame. Well, d’uh! Isn’t that why everyone is there?

It’s time to shut this whole operation down. Maybe the continuous drop in ratings will just make it happen naturally.

Chris Harrison? Playing golf, I would guess, with his multi million dollar settlement.
