ABC LAUNCHES LIVE “BACHELOR LIVE” TALK SHOW, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING “THE BACHELOR,” BEGINNING MONDAY, JANUARY 4
Chris Harrison Will Host
ABC announced today that “Bachelor Live,” a live one-hour after-show, will debut on MONDAY, JANUARY 4 at 10:01 p.m. EST, immediately following the Season 20 premiere of “The Bachelor” with new bachelor Ben Higgins. New episodes of “The Bachelor” will continue to air on Mondays (8:00–10:01 p.m. EST), with “Bachelor Live” airing for four-consecutive weeks afterwards (10:01–11:00 p.m. EST). The after-show episodes are hosted by Chris Harrison and produced by Embassy Row, the company behind “Watch What Happens Live,” Emmy-nominated “Talking Dead” and last summer’s “After Paradise.”
“Bachelor Live” will feature Harrison discussing and dissecting the most recent episodes of “The Bachelor,” alongside cast members and celebrity fans. The man who has seen it all as the host of “The Bachelor” franchise since the first rose ceremony took place over 13 years ago, Harrison will present questions and comments from viewers, debut deleted scenes, outtakes and exclusive extra content, all the while allowing members of #BachelorNation to have their say.
“Bachelor Live” is executive-produced by Mike Fleiss for Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, and Michael Davies, Jen Patton and Elan Gale for Embassy Row.
