NBC's ratings for the Winter Olympics dipped below those of the 2006 Winter Games in Torino for the first time Monday night.
The broadcast was watched by 20.9 million viewers, enough to easily win the night. But ratings fell 25 percent from last Monday night and were down 7 percent from the same night during the Torino Games. The 2006 games were the lowest-rated games in recent history, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Most of the other networks stuck to repeats, but the "Women Tell All" episode of The Bachelor (11.2 million viewers) performed very strongly, falling only 5 percent from last week's normal episode. Ratings for Fox's 24 (7 million viewers) were on par with the previous week's numbers, while CW's One Tree Hill (2.2 million viewers) and Life UneXpected (2 million viewers) were up from last week in the adults-18-to-49 demographic.
On the cable front, Keeping up with the Kardashians' season finale drew 4.8 million viewers Sunday to becomes E!'s most-watched broadcast ever.
