"Lost" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Opposite the second hour of Fox's 2-hour "American Idol" (featuring Top 10 female performances) from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ABC's "Lost" surged over its lead-in by 4.9 million viewers (9.2 vs. 4.3 million) and by 150% in young adults (4.0/10 vs. 1.6/4) and grew its numbers from start to finish (+3% in viewers/+5% in young adults).

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 36% currently, from 30% at the same point in 2009. 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.
