Bachelor in Paradise finale won’t air on some ABC channels due to NFL game


The Bachelor in Paradise season finale will be preempted by an NFL game tonight. That means some fans won’t be able to watch on ABC.

If you’re excited to watch the Bachelor in Paradise finale and reunion tonight, a football game may prevent you from watching. That’s right — the Los Angeles Chargers will play the Denver Broncos tonight and ABC is airing the game instead of the Paradise finale.

Now, that doesn’t mean Paradise will be blacked out for everyone. It depends where you live. But don’t worry, we have some options for you so you won’t miss the finale and (dramatic) reunion.

Here’s the scoop, Paradise fans!

If you live in Los Angeles and tune into ABC to watch the Bachelor in Paradise finale tonight, you’ll see the Chargers vs Broncos game instead. Pour a glass of wine and relax for just a minute. It’s going to be okay.

Although ABC made the stupid decision to pick football over Paradise (who does that!?), there are some options.

According to a tweet from the official BiP Twitter account, there are six channels that will air the finale live.

AT&T U-verse – 1006

Charter – 710

Cox – 1012


Frontier Communications – 506

Spectrum – 1231
