Watch out, The Voice — The Bachelor is making a move to dethrone you in not just the 18-49 demo (which it regularly wins) but also in total viewers.

On Monday night, ABC's reality dating series aired the first part of its Season 24 finale, reaching a season-high in both 18-49 and total viewers while also closing the gap with NBC's singing competition. The Voice, meanwhile, stayed on par in total viewers to win the two-hour time slot but dipped to a 1.3 rating in 18-49 (as opposed to 2.1 for The Bachelor). 9-1-1: Lone Star wrapped up its season with two back-to-back episodes that couldn't beat the unscripted powerhouses of the night.
