On the second episode of Juan Pablo, ABC’s latest man-in-waiting on The Bachelor, the ladies vying for his undying love were the central focus, and hoo lord, it’s gotten real hard real fast with this season. You know what I mean? That sad, guilty sink that creeps in immediately following an eye roll or laugh at the expense of a contestant. There’s no rationalizing this mess in the name of love and people doing stupid stuff for it.
Juan “Ze Bach-e-lor” Pablo is ready for amor, America: because he speaks ze language of loooooove. A language built on passion, “the right reasons,” shirtlessness, and television. It’s about the journey, you guys: and ABC is here to bring us on its 18th jaunt down the True Love Superhighway that is The Bachelor. The first-ever Latino Bachelor got his start on the series with a bunch of nutters. Seems there's a need to buckle up, kids: we're in for a very melodramatic ride.
Well, folks, now that it is officially Juan-uary (formally known as January to the rest of you) and so ABC’s emotional trainwreck of a competition series, The Bachelor has geared up for the promotional blitz ahead of its Sunday, JUANUARY 6th premiere date. (OK, we’ll stop doing that now). Seems as though the Juan Pablo Galavis-fronted season of the soapy fauxmance porn has found its first victim of TV Crazy, and her name is Lauren H.
The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe actually did what he set out to do on ABC’s competition series and found love in Catherine Giudici. We’re not talking the kind of love that lasts for a couple of months after a reality competition series has ended. We’re talking the kind of love that is leading straight to nuptials. The couple became engaged at the end of the 17th edition of The Bachelor and are now inviting fans to join them for a televised wedding, set to air in 2014.
ABC also spent a good chunk of the day renewing a vast number of scripted shows, which is great if you are a fan, say, of Once Upon A Time or Revenge, but also sort of annoying if you were hoping for some renewals of the network's reality programs. Luckily, it has not taken long for the Disney-owned network to rectify the situation. In a quick and certain move, ABC has renewed three veteran reality series programs.
Football players Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson think so. Today, the two men spoke out about bringing a lawsuit against both the Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Claybrooks and Johnson plan to file Wednesday, saying the show has discriminated for over a decade.
Which brings us to The Bachelor, one of ABC’s former juggernauts, which entered its 16th season to alright ratings. The new season of The Bachelor features winemaker Ben Flajnik, who formerly was shot down on a season of The Bachelorette. The show premiered at 8 p.m. ET to 7.74 million viewers, which is an ouch of a 13% drop from last year’s premiere. Even more gruesome was the second hour of the show, where ratings where down 17%.
Jersey Shore ended Season 4 without a bang a couple of weeks ago. Ratings showed a pretty big drop from the season’s start, reaching a mere 6.6 million viewers (down from 8.8 at the beginning). Mike might have gotten irritable and Jwoww may have started hanging out with Sammi; but hopefully, things will settle down as the cast returns from Italy and heads to the more familiar Seaside Heights, NJ.
After plenty of speculation on its future, ABC has decided to continue with its long running Bachelor and Bachelorette series, much to the delight of select members of the female population

If you can't wait to find out the next cast of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, then you're going to have to sit through the finale of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love on March 1, 2010 from 8-10 PM ET
Jason Mesnick will get his bride, and ABC wants to bring it to America. Mesnick's journey began on The Bachelorette, when he was one of the final two, but ultimately rejected by DeAnna Pappas. He headlined the next season of The Bachelor, where he chose Melissa Rycroft. Later, he changed his mind and proposed to the runner-up, Molly Malaney
Next week, the fourteenth edition of The Bachelor is set to premiere as fans of last season’s Bachelorette will get to see whether or not Jack Pavelka manages to find love this time around.
In comprising such a list, the staff here at Blend Television found that it was just as easy to come up with a list of shows that went on way past their prime. Shows that started off great
