Topping Fox by 1.4 million viewers, ABC ranked No. 1 in Total Viewers for the 2nd week in a row, standing as the most-watched network on the night in 17 of the last 18 weeks.

The Bachelorette ranked as Monday's #1 TV show in Total Viewers, qualifying as Monday's most-watched show overall for its 7th consecutive regular telecast.

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 41% currently, from 37% at the same point in 2010. 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.
