ABC Monday Prime (8-11pm - 8.0 million and 2.1/6 in AD18-49): With The Bachelor and a repeat Castle, ABC took second on Monday to CBS' all-original line-up in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

The Bachelor (8-10pm - 8.6 million and 2.5/7 in AD18-49): From 8-10pm, ABC's The Bachelor once again paced well ahead of its unscripted competition, beating NBC's back-to-back episodes of Hollywood Game Night by 3.5 million viewers (8.6 million vs. 5.1 million) and by 79% in Adults 18-49 (2.5/7 vs. 1.4/4). 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).

Growing week to week in Total Viewers (+9%) and Adults 18-49 (+9%), The Bachelor earned best-since-premiere numbers - since 1/6/14.

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.
