"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-9:30 p.m.)

Monday's most-watched program for the 5th time in 5 weeks this season, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" led its time period, towering over runner-up CBS by 7.5 million viewers (18.6 million vs. 11.1 million). "DWTS" also won its time period for the 5th time in as many weeks across each of the key women demos: Women 18-34 (3.6/9), Women 18-49 (5.6/13) and Women 25-54 (7.4/16). "Dancing with the Stars" saw the addition of four new dances to the competition: Hustle, Jitterbug, Salsa and West Coast Swing.

* "Dancing with the Stars" saw its audience grow by 2.2 million viewers (17.3 million to 19.5 million) and by 19% in Adults 18-49 (3.7/10 to 4.4/11) from start to finish.

* "Dancing with the Stars" was up week to week in Total Viewers (18.6 million vs. 17.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (4.1/10 vs. 4.0/10).

"Samantha Who?" (9:30-10:00 p.m.)

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

ABC's "Boston Legal" outperformed NBC's "My Own Worst Enemy" by 3.3 million viewers (9.0 million vs. 5.7 million) for the 2nd consecutive week. In addition, the ABC drama beat the NBC series among Women 18-49 (3.0/7 vs. 2.3/6) and Adults 25-54 (3.0/7 vs. 2.7/7).

* "Boston Legal" posted week-to-week increases in Total Viewers (9.0 million vs. 8.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.3/6 vs. 2.1/5).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 28% currently, from 20% at the same point in 2007. 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.
