Make sure the target layer is selected.
Make sure you launched Bridge from within AE. If you open Bridge independently the linkage doesn't work.
You can also select the text layer, go to Animation -> Apply Animation Preset and select the one you want.

Jonas, thank you for a work around, using the bridge method would be nicer, but the apply animation preset works, I just have to open bridge so I can preview the text effect I want to apply. Main thing is I got it to work. Now to figure out why bridge and AE aren't talking.
I did open bride thru the fly out in AE, the text layer was selected but no go on the double click. The work around (long cut thru animation works) kinda weird
Make sure to run AE and Bridge in the correct language version. Returning the proper preset name on double-click is language dependent and may not work if you e.g. run AE in English, but installed everything in German.
The double-click has broken on my on several occasions. If I remember correctly, trashing the Bridge prefs solves the problem.
