"The Bachelor" topped NBC's "Superstars of Dance" from 8:00-10:00pm by 2.0 million viewers and by 68% in the key young adult sales demo (7.1 million & 1.9/4 in Adults 18-49).

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 29% currently, from 22% at the same point in 2008. 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.
