From 8:00-10:00 p.m., "The Bachelorette" was up week to week in Total Viewers (+8%) and Adults 18-49 (+6%) to deliver best-since-premiere numbers. The show was also up sharply from its Sunday special, spiking 30% in Total Viewers and 21% in Adults 18-49 (5.0 million and 1.4/4 on 6/1/14). Please Note: Last week's "The Bachelorette" Monday telecast went up 2-tenths of an Adult 18-49 rating point from the preliminary numbers to the Nationals.

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.
