Spiking week to week in Total Viewers (+20%) and Adults 18-49 (+21%), The Bachelorette achieved season-highs on both counts.

Up for the 2nd week in a row with viewers (+3%) and young adults (+8%), ABC's Mistresses hit 7-week highs to post series' 2nd-highest numbers - since 6/10/13. In addition for the 2nd consecutive week, the ABC drama set a new series high with Adults 18-34.

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 48% currently, from 45% at the same point in 2012. 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.
