ABC’s has a minor summer hit with The Bachelorette. The dating competition wooed 7.2 million viewers, according to preliminary overnight ratings; that’s a boost of 800k viewers from the previous week. Meanwhile, Heidi and Spencer’s last episode (or is it?) of I’m a Celebrity… failed to nab huge viewership with only 5.2 million tuning in. Comparatively, last Monday’s premiere scored 6.4 million for the network.
