Good day highvoltageblond!

No question about it, The Bachelorette was an ABC ratings blockbuster.
It came in at #13 on Nielsen's 2002-2003 season ratings list, tied
with Will & Grace with 10.7% of American households tuning in.
Viewership was highest among females aged 18-34.

A brief word on Nielsen ratings:

Nielsen ratings are comprised of two numbers: the rating and the
share. Here's the distinction:

- Ratings indicate the percentage of American households with
televisions who watched a given program

- Shares represent the viewership percentage among households who
actually had their TVs ON.

Confusing, I know! Essentially, it's the viewership percentage among
households who own TVs versus program viewership on TVs in use in a
given time slot.

For the Bachelorette season finale alone, ABC estimates that 30
million viewers tuned in to at least a portion of the show.
