"The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine's Wedding" (8:00-10:00 p.m. - 6.1 million and 1.6/4 in AD18-49): Opposite big competition from CBS' "Grammy Awards" and NBC's 2014 NFL Pro Bowl from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ABC's "The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine's Wedding" improved its period week to week by 30% in Total Viewers (6.1 million vs. 4.7 million) and by 45% in Adults 18-49 (1.6/4 vs. 1.1/3). During its 2-hour broadcast, "The Bachelor" special took second to the "Grammys" in key Women (W18-34/W18-49).

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.
