A Special Edition of 20/20: Before They Were Famous (10-11pm): During the 10 o'clock hour, opposite NBC's highly-promoted throughout the Olympics series debut of Parenthood (also airing with limited commercial interruptions), a Special Edition of 20/20 improved the hour week to week for ABC in Total Viewers (+8% - 5.4 million vs. 5.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (+6% - 1.8/5 vs. 1.7/5), posting the Net's best time-slot results in 3 weeks � since 2/9/10.

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).

During the 10 o'clock hour, opposite NBC's series debut of "Parenthood" (airing with limited commercial interruptions) which was highly-promoted throughout the Olympics, "A Special Edition of 20/20" improved the hour week to week for ABC in Total Viewers (+8% - 5.4 million vs. 5.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (+6% - 1.8/5 vs. 1.7/5), posting the Net's best time-slot results in 3 weeks � since 2/9/10.

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.
