In fact ABC's repeat unscripted series overshadowed CBS' original "Big Brother 9" by 3.4 million viewers and by 43% in young adults (6.5 million & 2.1/6) and NBC's broadcast premiere of "Monk" by 4.2 million viewers and by 100% (5.7 million & 1.5/4).

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 jumped from over 14% at the same point in 2006, up to more than 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.
