ABC Monday Prime (8-11pm – 8.0 million and 2.1/6 in AD18-49): With The Bachelor and a repeat Castle, ABC took second on Monday to CBS’ all-original line-up in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.  For the 3rd straight week, the Net ranked #1 on Monday with Adults 18-34 and key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

 

The Bachelor (8-10pm – 8.6 million and 2.5/7 in AD18-49):  From 8-10pm, ABC’s The Bachelor once again paced well ahead of its unscripted competition, beating NBC’s back-to-back episodes of Hollywood Game Night by 3.5 million viewers (8.6 million vs. 5.1 million) and by 79% in Adults 18-49 (2.5/7 vs. 1.4/4).  Building from its first to second hour, The Bachelor won the 9 o’clock hour in Adults 18-49 (2.7/7), outdelivering CBS’ comedies by 8% (2.5/6 – Mike & Molly/Mom) and Fox’s slot premiere of The Following by 35% (2.0/5).  For the 3rd consecutive week, the ABC unscripted series led its 2-hour slot in Adults 18-34 and was Monday’s #1 TV show in key Women (W18-34/W18-49).  Growing week to week in Total Viewers (+9%) and Adults 18-49 (+9%), The Bachelor earned best-since-premiere numbers – since 1/6/14.
