Boosted by a winning performance from the 2-hour "Brothers & Sisters" event, ABC ranked No. 1 on Sunday night among Adults 18-49 (3.6/9) for the 3rd week in a row.

"America's Funniest Home Videos" (7:00-8:00 p.m.)

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 30% currently, from 23% 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.
