“Bachelorette” biggest show in Atlanta TV ratings, Rob Thomas & Darius Rucker top Atlanta radio charts

It was a quiet week in primetime TV — five of the top 20 shows was Fox 5 News at 10.

Jillian picking Ed over Kyptin on “The Bachelorette” finale drew the most viewers in Atlanta of the week during primetime with a relatively modest 267,000 viewers Monday July 20. (It brought home 8 million nationally, ranked No. 10).

The new reality show “Dating in the Dark” held most of the audience, bringing in 227,000 viewers, better retention than nationwide where the show attracted 6.1 million people.

BET’s Atlanta reality show “Tiny & Toya,” in its third go around July 21, lost a bit of ground from 1.9 million to 1.8 million. (Of those 1.8 million viewers, 1.6 million are African American, making it the top show among blacks for the week.) Locally, it ranked in the top 20.

Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva,” shot in Peachtree City, in its third episode Sunday, actually matched its first-week performance of 2.8 million viewers. These are good numbers that bode well for a second season.

The “Fashion Show” on Bravo finale fell off to 1.1 million viewers last Thursday from 1.4 million a week earlier. Former Atlantan Anna McCraney won.
