Some early points for ABC's Monday ahead of the regular press release.

With The Bachelorette and True Beauty, ABC took first place on Monday night in both Total Viewers (7.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.5/8).

In fact ABC ranked #1 in all 6 half-hours of the evening among Adults 18-49.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 36% currently, from 31% at the same point in 2009. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
