For the first time this season, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" outdrew "House," topping the Fox drama by 1.4 million viewers to win the 9 o'clock hour (18.6 million vs. 17.2 million) and emerge as Tuesday's most-watched TV show.

� "Boston Legal" delivered the series' biggest audience on the night in more than 1 year � 9/19/06.

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 approximately 9% at this time last year up to more than 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.
