    "The Bachelor" may getting up there in age, but it's still generating dreamy ratings for ABC.

    The network's signature dating franchise is having its best season since spring 2004, with this winter's 14th cycle averaging a 4.0 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. Among all viewers, the show is bringing in 11.3 million viewers -- up 7 percent from last season.

    And among its target demo of young women, "The Bachelor" is on fire: It's the No. 7 show on all TV among women 18-49. Among reality shows, only "American Idol" does better in the female demo.

    Not bad for a franchise that not long ago was written off for dead.
