Winning the 8 o'clock hour, ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" defeated its nearest competition in its time period by 2.7 million viewers (12.4 million vs. 9.7 million � NBC) and by 25% in Adults 18-49 (4.0/11 vs. 3.2/9 � Fox).

"Oprah's Big Give" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

For the second week in a row, ABC's "Oprah's Big Give" dominated its 9 o'clock time period, defeating its closest competition by 3.9 million viewers (11.8 million vs. 7.9 million � CBS) and by 25% in Adults 18-49 (4.0/10 vs. 3.2/8 � Fox).

� "Oprah's Big Give" exhibited perfect 100% retention of its Adult 18-49 lead-in, and built on "Home Edition" across each of the key women demographics: W18-34 +5% (4.3/12 vs. 4.1/12), W18-49 +6% (5.3/13 vs. 5.0/13) and W25-54 +9% (6.3/14 vs. 5.8/14).

"Here Come the Newlyweds" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Here Come the Newlyweds" won its time period for the second consecutive week in Total Viewers (8.9 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.6/9). In fact the new ABC unscripted series dominated the time period among Adults 18-49, topping second-place NBC by 64% (2.2/6 � "L&O: SVU � R) and third-place CBS by 89% (1.9/5 � "Dexter").

� "Here come the Newlyweds" was up from its week-ago debut in Adults 18-34 (3.2/9 vs. 3.1/9) and Men 18-34 (2.6/7 vs. 1.8/5), winning its slot on both counts.

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 13% at the same point in 2006, up to 23% 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.
