WEEK No. 21:

Rankings: ABC claimed 4 of the week's Top 20 TV programs in Adults 18-49, including 2 in the Top 6 and the No. 1 scripted show with "Lost": "Lost" � No. 4, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" � No. 6, "Supernanny" � No. 15 and "Brothers & Sisters" � No. 20 . In addition, ABC's "Lost" (No. 4) and "Home Edition" (No. 5) both finished among the Top 5 most-watched television shows for the week. ABC News' "20/20" in Friday's 10 o'clock hour stood as the No. 1 newsmagazine of the week in Adults 18-49.

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 nearly doubled from nearly 13% at the same point in 2006, up to more than 22% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. 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.

Monday

"Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" (8:00-9:31 p.m.)

ABC's "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" led its time period in Total Viewers (9.2 million), while taking second among Women 25-54 (4.3/10).
