The show was also up sharply from its Sunday special, spiking 30% in Total Viewers and 21% in Adults 18-49. 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.

In addition, the show held even with its year-ago debut in Adults 18-49 (1.2/3 on 6/3/13) and was up 9% from its September season finale (1.1/3 on 9/9/13).

· Please Note: During its first season, Mistresses saw big increases via TV playback, jumping 50% from its initially-reported Live + Same Day number to its final Live +7 Day Adult 18-49 rating and making it the 2nd-biggest gainer for any summer broadcast series in 2013 (behind only ABC's Rookie Blue).

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. The ABC unscripted series ranked No. 1 in its time period among Total Viewers, Adults 18-34 and across all key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

· "The Bachelorette" was up over its year-ago telecast by 14% in Total Viewers and held even in Adults 18-49 (5.7 million and 1.7/5 on 6/3/13).

"Mistresses" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 4.5 million and 1.2/4 in AD18-49):

During the 10:00 p.m. hour, ABC's "Mistresses" opened its 2nd season with its most-watched telecast ever, rising 2% over its year-ago debut (4.5 million vs. 4.4 million on 6/3/13).

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.
