WBC Super Welterweight Boxing Champion Floyd Mayweather was the fourth celebrity dancer to be eliminated from the competition this season.

� ABC's "DWTS the Results Show" increased its overall audience for the second straight week, achieving season highs in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

Boston Legal" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Boston Legal" defeated CBS' "Cane" by a best-yet 1.7 million viewers (10.2 million vs. 8.5 million) and by 27% in Adults 18-49 (2.8/8 vs. 2.2/6).

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.
