From 8-10pm, The Bachelorette (part 1 of a 2-part season finale) dominated its 2-hour time period, defeating NBC's unscripted combo (American Ninja Warrior/Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls) by a best-yet 3.4 million viewers and by 77% in Adults 18-49. 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. During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Mistresses more than doubled the audience of NBC's Siberia and nearly doubled in Adults 18-49 (+86%). On average season to date, Mistresses is boosting its time period for ABC by strong double-digit percentages in Total Viewers (+29%) and Adults 18-49 (+42%).

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.
