Moving into its regular 8:00-10:00 p.m. slot following last week's post-"DWTS" 90-minute premiere, "The Bachelorette" made ABC the most-watched TV network (5.7 million) in its 2-hour time period and tied for No. 1 in each hour among Adults 18-49 (1.4/5 and 1.5/4, respectively).

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.
