Excluding the night of the second Presidential Debate, ABC drew its largest audience (11.3 million) and highest Adults 18-49 performance (2.7/7) since season premiere Tuesday � since 9/23/08.

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

ABC's "Dancing with the Stars Recap" saw increases in the hour over the previous week of 4.1 million (9.3 million vs. 5.2 million) and 54% in Adults 18-49 (2.0/6 vs. 1.3/4).

"Dancing with the Stars Results" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Dancing with the Stars Results" hit season highs in both Total Viewers (16.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.8/9), growing week to week by 1.2 million viewers and by 15% among young adults (14.8 million & 3.3/8 on 10/14/08). In addition, "DWTS Results" led its time period in Total Viewers, Women 18-49 (5.2/12) and Women 25-54 (6.4/14), leading its time slot for the 4th consecutive telecast in both women demos.

� "Eli Stone" saw gains over its season premiere the prior week among Women 18-34 (2.4/7 vs. 2.1/6) and Women 18-49 (3.1/8 vs. 2.8/7).

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.
