Is ‘The Bachelorette’ On TV Tonight?

Each Monday night from 8 – 10 p.m. ET/PT, a new episode of The Bachelorette airs on ABC, but last week, there was no new episode. Instead of The Bachelorette, the network was all about basketball, with the 2017 NBA Finals: Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors airing from 9 – 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

But, perhaps having a little break was good for the Bachelor franchise, as there have been some major issues going on with the franchise, after allegations of sexual misconduct arose on the first days of filming for Bachelor in Paradise. FOX News reported that contestants Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson were getting “hot and heavy” in the pool while cameras were filming. According to TMZ, a field producer filed an official complaint, claiming that Olympios was too drunk to consent to Jackson’s advances, which Jackson said involved oral sex. There are many conflicting reports, especially coming from cast members, who have publicly said that they felt Olympios was lucid and aware of her surroundings at the time of the incident. Others have said that Olympios commented that she had a boyfriend at home and that he would be upset with her actions if she hooked up with someone on set. The incident is still being investigated and filming is still suspended.

So, now that we’ve got the latest news on the franchise, let’s narrow our focus to tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette. The official ABC synopsis of what to expect reads:

The contentious cocktail party continues, as a frustrated Eric implores the rest of bachelors to stop talking about him to Rachel. While most of the men are perfectly content to skip the drama, one calculating guy, Lee, deceptively steals Rachel away from Kenny for a second conversation. The two bachelors’ confrontation sets off a heated argument, totally distracting Rachel as she attempts to better acquaint herself with the other men. So she makes a decision that surprises all of the bachelors. After the rose ceremony, the remaining men leave the mansion to travel to beautiful, peaceful Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where Rachel hopes to get a fresh start.

Tonight, The Bachelorette will resume its normal schedule and will air at 8 p.m. ET/PT, so be sure to tune in via the ABC network. If you’d like to watch the show, but you are without a TV, check out your live stream options below. These options will work throughout the season as well.
