"Pushing Daisies" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

In the key Adult 18-49 sales demo, "Daisies" beat out its nearest competition in the hour by a decisive 16% (NBC = 3.1/9).

� "Pushing Daisies" retained an impressive 94% of its series debut audience among Adults 18-34 (3.1/10 vs. 3.3/10) and grew +5% from its debut telecast with Women 18-34 (4.4/13 vs. 4.2/12).

"Private Practice" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Wednesday's No. 1 TV program, ABC's "Private Practice" grew week to week, increasing its winning advantage in the time period to 26% over its nearest competition (4.8/12 vs. 3.8/10 � NBC and CBS dramas tied). In addition to standing as the top-rated show of the night in Adults 18-49, "Private Practice" was also Wednesday's No. 1 TV program with Adults 18-34 (5.0/14) and Adults 25-54 (5.1/12-tie).

ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" defeated its freshman drama competition during the 10 o'clock hour, besting NBC's "Life" by 10% in Total Viewers (8.9 million vs. 8.1 million) and by 21% in Adults 18-49 (3.4/9 vs. 2.8/8).

� "Dirty Sexy Money" posted a series-best among Adults 18-34 (3.4/10).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year to year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating trends based on the Live + Same Day data stream may be somewhat distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has more than doubled from 9% at this time last year up to 20% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. Therefore, the only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
