Opposite NBC's "The Voice" Premiere and Fox's Finales, ABC's "Bachelor Pad" Season Finale Draws its 2nd-Largest Overall Audience of the Season

ABC's "Castle" Encore Posts Double-Digit Increases Week to Week

"Bachelor Pad" (8:00-10:00 p.m.)

Opposite the 2-hour season premiere of NBC's "The Voice" and season finales on Fox ("Hell's Kitchen" and "Masterchef"), the season finale and ABC's "Bachelor Pad" drew its 2nd-largest overall audience this season (4.5 million � behind only its season premiere on 7/23/12) and matched its 2nd-strongest young adult performance (1.3/3) since its season premiere.

· ABC's "Bachelor Pad" saw its audience grow in both Total Viewers (4.4 million to 4.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.3/4 to 1.4/3) from its first hour to its second hour.

"Castle" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

At 10:00 p.m., an encore of ABC's "Castle" posted double-digit increases week to week in both Total Viewers (+27% - 4.2 million vs. 3.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (+33% - 0.8/2 vs. 0.6/2).

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 45% currently, from 42% at the same point in 2011. 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.
