Building from its first to second hour, The Bachelor won the 9 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49 (2.7/7), outdelivering CBS' comedies by 8% (2.5/6 - Mike & Molly/Mom) and Fox's slot premiere of The Following by 35% (2.0/5).

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 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. 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.
