Monday was a pretty decent night for the broadcast networks. ABC got steady numbers from the premiere of “The Bachelor,” “Superstore” and “Telenovela” held up reasonably well in their time-period premieres on NBC and CBS was up across the board.

“The Bachelor” (2.2) was in line with its premiere last season, although not many people stuck around for the debut of aftershow “Bachelor Live” (1.1). “Superstore’s” 1.7 was off just 0.3 from its “Voice”-aided premiere in November, while “Telenovela” fell only 0.1 from its post-“Voice” slot. “The Biggest Loser” (1.2), on the other hand, was off 0.4 from last season’s premiere.

On CBS, “Supergirl” (1.8) had its best number since mid-November, “Scorpion” (2.1) hit its highest rating since the season premiere and “NCIS: Los Angeles” scored a season-high 1.6. FOX’s special “Superhuman” scored a 1.2.

Definitions:
Rating
: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    […] b>Ratings are in and the “Bachelor” premiere drew 7.5 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demo. Pretty much held steady with Chris Soules’ premiere last season that drew 7.7 million viewers and a 2.4 rating. In comparison to the three seasons before that, Juan Pablo drew 8.4 million, Sean 6.9, and Ben Flajnik 7.7. So this is right on par with probably what they expected. The “Bachelor: Live” show almost lost half of the “Bachelor’s” audience, getting 4.2 million and a 1.1 rating. We have nothing to compare it to since this is the first one that’s ever aired after the “Bachelor.” It did better than “After Paradise,” but it should because that’s a summer show, and typically summer shows across the board are down.
