For the first time in seven years, ABC will air The Bachelorette‘s After the Final Rose special LIVE, immediately following the show’s July 22 finale. Yes, July 22nd…a Sunday! Why all the big changes?
By airing the After the Final Rose special live, the network is hoping to avoid any spoilers getting leaked (too late!) about who Emily Maynard chooses during the 2012 season finale of The Bachelorette.
As for the special date for the actual finale…. Well, your guess is as good as ours.
Instead of its usual Monday night slot, the show will air on Sunday, July 22 from 8-10 ET, with the LIVE After the Final Rose beginning right at 10.
Some are speculating that ABC made the switcharoo to create some competition for the premiere of CBS‘ new summer dating show, 3, which follows the lives of three single women looking for love.
And why would ABC want to do that?
Currently, ABC is winning the legal battle over their latest reality
bomb series, but CBS has vowed to continue the fight.
Whatever their reasons, here’s what you need to know:
The season finale of The Bachelorette will air on SUNDAY, July 22 at 8 ET, followed by the LIVE After the Final Rose Special at 10 ET.
Who will Emily Maynard choose, and will all these changes really have any impact on the spoilers? Tune in to find out!
