ABC is Monday's Most-Watched Net for the 4th Straight Week

Some early info on ABC's Monday night numbers, ahead of the regular press release.

Standing as Monday's most-watched network for the 4th week in a row, ABC delivered another decisive win on the night, outdrawing second-place CBS with its coverage of the 2011 NCAA Basketball Men's Championship game by a wide margin (+3.8 million).

Leading each of its half-hours in viewers and ranking as Monday's most-watched TV show overall for the 3rd week running, ABC's Dancing with the Stars won its time period over second-place CBS by 9.1 million viewers and by 15% in Adults 18-49. In fact it was ABC's 7th consecutive week to rank #1 in the time slot in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. Despite the stiff competition, DWTS' audience climbed from its first hour to its second hour, gaining 2.0 million viewers and by 12% in Adults 18-49.

· Outdrawing its year-ago telecast, DWTS generated its biggest audience ever against the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.

Opposite the NCAA Basketball Championship, ABC's Castle stood as the #1 TV series in the 10 o'clock hour in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. In fact it was the 2nd most-watched regular program on the night, behind only DWTS. Overshadowing the season finale of Harry's Law, ABC's Castle once again (3rd consecutive week) exhibited its biggest-ever winning advantage over an original episode of the NBC drama (+4.3 million viewers and +123% in Adults 18-49).

"Castle" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Opposite the NCAA Basketball Championship, ABC's "Castle" stood as the No. 1 TV series in the 10 o'clock hour in Total Viewers (11.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.9/7).

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 40% currently, from 36% at the same point in 2010. 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.
