ABC's 'Bachelorette,' 'Newlyweds' rise in ratings

Bachelorette Seems like NBC's "I'm a Celebrity" viewers broke to ABC's "Bachelorette" this week, with the reality romance rising following the conclusion of NBC's program.

"Bachelorette" (8 million viewers, 2.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) went up 17%, posting its best numbers since its season premiere. At 10 p.m., "Here Come the Newlyweds" (5 million, 1.8) went along for the ride jumping 29%, though still came in last place in the 10 p.m. hour. The movement gave ABC a firm Monday night win.

CBS placed second in the demo with repeats. NBC was third with repeats and the return of Martin Bashir's documentary "Living with Michael Jackson" (6.7 million, 2.1), which won 10 p.m.

Fox was in fourth place and proved that even a dearly departed Michael Jackson can't make viewers flock to a reality competition series repeat. Fox re-ran last season's two-hour "American Idol" (4.2 million, 1.4) devoted to Jackson's music.
