The Bachelor is down from its debut last Wednesday, with last night's third episode pulling in an average metro audience of 715,000, down 130,000 from its premiere.

While the show ranked 12th in the top 20 programs, it won the 16-39 and 18-49 demos. This attention could be due to Matty J's hotly anticipated 'first kiss' with one of the the contestants.

The Block won the night for entertainment programs, ranking fourth in the top 20 with an average metro audience of 982,000. The show also won the 25-54 demo.
