"Bachelor Pad" (8:00-10:00 p.m.)

The first season finale of ABC's "Bachelor Pad" led its 2-hour time period across each of the key Women demos: W18-34 (2.7/8), W18-49 (2.7/7) and W25-54 (3.2/8). In fact, "Bachelor Pad" led its time period in all 6 telecasts among Women 18-49 and Women 25-54. In addition, "Bachelor Pad" stood as Monday's No. 1 program among Women 18-34 and Women 18-49. Natalie Getz and David Good won the first season of "Bachelor Pad," splitting the $250,000 prize.

· On average during its 6-week run, "Bachelorette Pad" was up over the Net's 8:00-10:00 p.m. averages on the same nights the previous year by nearly 1.0 million viewers (6.2 million vs. 5.3 million) and by 40% in Adults 18-49 (2.1/6 vs. 1.5/4).

· On average during its second season, "Dating in the Dark" improved ABC's numbers in the hour over the year-ago weeks by 33% in Adults 18-34 (1.2/4 vs. 0.9/3) and by 23% in Adults 18-49 (1.6/5 vs. 1.3/4).

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 38% currently, from 32% 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.
