ABC Monday Prime (8-11pm – 8.2 million and 2.2/6 in AD18-49): For the 2nd week in a row, ABC finished as Monday’s most-watched network overall and ranked #1 with Adults 18-34 and key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).  Growing week to week in Adults 18-49 (+5%), the Net ran in a virtual tie for #1 on the night, pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in share with Fox and its 2-hour Sleepy Hollow finale (2.2/6 vs. 2.3/6).  ABC’s Castle was Monday’s most-watched drama (8.9 million), outdrawing NBC’s Blacklist (8.7 million) and Fox’s Sleepy Hollow closer (6.9 million).


The Bachelor (8-10pm – 7.8 million and 2.3/6 in AD18-49):  From 8-10pm, ABC’s The Bachelor once again dominated its unscripted competition in the 2-hour time period, beating NBC’s back to back episodes of Hollywood Game Night by 3.3 million viewers (7.8 million vs. 4.5 million) and by 64% in Adults 18-49 (2.3/6 vs. 1.4/4). For the 2nd straight week, the ABC unscripted series won its slot in Adults 18-34 and was Monday’s #1 TV show in key Women (W18-34/W18-49).  The Bachelor gained 1-tenth of a rating point from its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating.


Castle (10-11pm – 8.9 million and 2.0/6 in AD18-49):  During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s Castle was the most-watched TV show overall and nearly caught NBC’s Blacklist in Adults 18-49 with its closest-ever finish (2.0/6 vs. 2.3/6).  In addition, the ABC drama also held the #1 position in the hour over Blacklist in Adults 18-34 and across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).  Castle was up for the 2nd consecutive week in Adults 18-49 (+5%) to deliver its highest number since November – since 11/25/13.
