ABC is #1 in A18-49 for the 7th Consecutive Monday

Some early points on ABC's Thursday, ahead of the regular press release.

Growing from the previous Monday for the 2nd week in a row, ABC stood as the most-watched network overall for the 5th week in a row and ranked #1 in Adults 18-49 for the 7th Monday straight Monday, posting a summer-high performance in both Nielson measures. The Network beat its nearest primetime competition (CBS) by 2.5 million viewers (8.5 million vs. 6.0 million) and by 56% in Adults 18-49 (2.8/9 vs. 1.8/5).

Building its overall Monday audience year to year for the 8th time in 8 weeks, ABC was improved on the same night last year in viewers and young adults (7.4 million and 2.6/8 on 7/20/09).

ABC's The Bachelorette ranked a strong #1 in its time period for the 8th consecutive week, beating its closest 8-10pm competition (CBS) by 3.7 million viewers (9.9 million vs. 6.2 million) and by 74% (3.3/10 vs. 1.9/6). The veteran ABC unscripted series won all 4 of its half-hours in viewers and young adults.

The Bachelorette registered as Monday's #1 TV show in Adults 18-49 for the 6th week in a row, and for the 8th week running stood the evening's dominant #1 television program across all key Women demographics (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

The Bachelorette achieved season-highs in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. In fact excluding season finales, the series drew its biggest audience since February 2004 (since 2/18/04 during Season 2) and its highest Adult 18-49 rating since February 2005 (since 2/21/05 during Season 3).

On average, The Bachelorette is up over its performance at the same point last year by 1.6 million viewers and by 14% in Adults 18-49.

With its season finale, ABC's True Beauty ranked #1 in the 10 o'clock hour against its CBS and NBC competition among Adults 18-49 for the 2nd straight week.

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 37% currently, from 32% 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.
