In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s The Bachelorette drew 4.3 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, down two tenths in the demo week-to-week but still topping Tuesday in that measure.

Leading out of that, Big Sky‘s fall finale (3.9 mil/0.6, TVLine reader grade “A-“; read post mortem) added eyeballs while steady in the demo.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
