Monday Final Ratings: ‘The Bachelor’ on ABC Still Potent Opposite Olympics Telecasts

Monday’s NBC Olympics’ primetime coverage delivered a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) average of 18.6 million viewers, according to live plus same day fast national data by Nielsen, and digital data from Adobe Analytics — down 21 percent from the comparable Monday night of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics (23.5 million).

The NBC/NBCSN average last night of 18.5 million viewers dominated the TV competition – nearly tripling the audience of the #2 show in primetime (6.2 million viewers for The Bachelor).

NBC Sports Digital delivered an average minute audience of 192,000 for Monday night’s coverage.

Monday night’s NBC/NBCSN viewership peaked at 19.3 million viewers from 9-9:15 p.m. ET, highlighted by women’s freestyle skiing on NBC and ice dance on NBCSN.

The U.S. men’s hockey team’s 5-1 victory over Slovakia on NBCSN averaged 1.62 million viewers — the network’s second-most watched hockey game in the late time slot (10 p.m. or later) in its history (since 2005), behind only the Minnesota Wild-Chicago Blackhawks NHL Stanley Cup Playoff game on May 2, 2014 (1.95 million viewers).

The top ten markets for NBC/NBCSN in Monday prime time were:
1. Salt Lake City 21.4/37
2. Denver 20.6/33
3. San Diego 18.4/31
4. Minneapolis 17.4/30
5. Austin 16.5/28
6. Milwaukee 16.1/25
7. Sacramento 15.9/27
8. West Palm Beach 15.5/24
9. Buffalo 15.3/24
10. Providence 15.2/25
Local metered market data represents NBC/NBCSN in primetime and includes the NBC West Coast encore and excludes sustainers.
