LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “The Bachelor” will be looking for love all over again on VH1. The lifestyle cable network said Thursday it acquired the full library of ABC’s reality competition series.
VH1 — which has set network records with its own dating reality shows, including “Flavor of Love” and “Rock of Love With Bret Michaels” — will air the first seven seasons of “Bachelor” from June 1-7, with one season airing each day as part of a marathon.
“Bachelor” debuted on ABC in March 2002; its most recent 12th edition averaged 7 million viewers a week. The VH1 licensing deal also includes “The Bachelorette.”
