The Bachelorette June 24

via press note:


From 8-10pm against the NHL Stanley Cup Finals, ABC’s The Bachelorette ranked as the #1 regular program in its 2-hour time period with Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.  In addition, the ABC unscripted series won its time slot across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54) and finished as Monday’s #1 TV show with Women 18-34. Spiking by double-digits week to week in Total Viewers (+16%) and Adults 18-49 (+12%), The Bachelorette drew its largest audience this season and equaled a season high in young adults (matching its season premiere).


At 10pm, ABC’s Mistresses is seeing substantial gains in TV playback.  Based on the first round of Live + 7 Day ratings for the new drama, Mistresses’ Adult 18-49 rating jumped 58%, going from a 1.2 in the L+SD data to a 1.9 in the L+7 data.  And in the Live + 3 Day ratings, Mistresses has increased by 5-tenths of an AD18-49 rating point from its next day number on each of its first 3 telecasts.

    I will never understand why out of the whole summer schedule. CBS, ABC, and NBC decided to all put their biggest looking shows on Monday at 10. Under the dome crushed Mistresses last night and will probably do the same to Siberia next week.

    ABC should move Mistresses to Tuesdays at 10 and if it gets crushed, NBC should move Siberia to the Thursday 9pm (to keep Hollywood game night at 10) or 10pm slot.
