The Bachelorette was scheduled to run until 10:02pm, and True Beauty was scheduled to run from 10:02-11pm, increasing the likelihood that both will be adjusted in the final ratings.
ABC’s The Bachelorette is becoming “The Monster That Ate Summer Mondays” as it increased its ratings while most of its original competition fell.

ABC’s The Bachelorette was up 15% vs. last week to a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating and lengthened its lead over most of the broadcast competition on the night. Even with True Beauty’s 15% decline to a 1.7 rating, ABC stretched its overall ratings lead on the night vs. last Monday.

In “serious” programming on Monday, Lie To Me bounced back 6% vs. last week to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. While, The Good Guys held at a series low 1.2 rating.

Moving to 8pm didn’t help the “they can’t be serious” Persons Unknown, as it fell to a series low 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. And the move to 9pm didn’t help Last Comic Standing either, as it fell 11% to a series low tieing 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

In less serious programming news, CBS’ repeats were second overall in the adults 18-49 ratings for the night.

Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2010 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. 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. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

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.

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. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
