In addition, the ABC unscripted series was Monday’s #2 TV show with viewers and young adults, behind only CBS’ Under the Dome. Gaining week to week in viewers (+8%) and young adults (+6%), The Bachelorette marked its most-watched telecast this season and its 2nd highest number with Adults 18-49.
Building in Total Viewers (+11%) and Adults 18-49 (+9%) to deliver 4-week highs, ABC’s Mistresses beat out NBC’s Siberia in the 10 o’clock hour by wide margins on both measures (+48%/+20%). Up over original programming on the year-ago night, the new drama continued to improve its hour year to year by double-digits in viewers (+43%) and young adults (+20%).
