Monday's No. 1 TV Show, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Defeats NBC's "Deal Or No Deal" from 8-10pm by 7.6 Million Viewers and by 50% in Adults 18-49

"DWTS" Marks the Series' Strongest Start Ever in Viewers and Young Adults

Monday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)

With the fourth season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" on the night, ABC stood as the No. 1 TV network on Monday in viewers and young adults. The Network outpaced its nearest competition during prime by 5.2 million viewers (16.9 million vs. 11.7 million) and by 30% in Adults 18-49 (5.2/13 vs. 4.0/10).

* ABC's broad appealing "Dancing with the Stars" qualified as Monday's No. 1 TV program in Total Viewers, across the adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54) and among Kids 2-11.

"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-10:00 p.m.)

Despite facing stiff competition in its fourth season premiere, including NBC's "Deal or No Deal," CBS' original comedies and Fox's first-run dramas ("Prison Break"/"24"), ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" soared to the top of its time period. "Dancing with the Stars" outdrew its nearest competition (NBC's 2-hour "Deal or No Deal") by 7.6 million viewers (21.7 million vs. 14.1 million) and by 50% in Adults 18-49 (6.3/16 vs. 4.2/11). The ABC unscripted series built steadily throughout its broadcast, growing by 3.6 million viewers (19.6 million to 23.2 million) and by 25% in Adults 18-49 (5.5/16 to 6.9/16) from its first half-hour to its final half-hour.

* Delivering its best-ever season premiere results, "DWTS" was up from its third season opener last September by 1.5 million viewers and by 11% in Adults 18-49 (20.2 million & 5.7/15 on 9/12/06). The series topped last year's January premiere by 4.2 million viewers and by 31% in Adults 18-49 (17.5 million & 4.8/12 in Adults 18-49 on 1/5/06).

* In its premiere telecast, "Dancing with the Stars" generated ABC's largest audience in the time period with regularly scheduled entertainment programming in more than 15 years - since 1/20/92. It was the Net's top Adult 18-49 number with regular entertainment programming in the time slot in over 8 years - since 2/22/99.
