ABC Wins Monday in Viewers for the 2nd Week Running/"Castle" Continues to Grow

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

Among Adults 18-49, ABC outdelivered Fox's prime with its highly-promoted 2-hour debut of Terra Nova and more than doubled NBC's delivery (+107%).

Growing its audience from its first hour to its second hour against CBS' Two and a Half Men-fueled comedy block from 8-10pm, Dancing with the Stars once again made ABC the most-watched net in its time period, outdrawing CBS by 2.0 million viewers. Head to head among Adults 18-49, ABC's DWTS defeated Fox's 2-hour Terra Nova debut by 10% and NBC's The Sing Off by 94%.

For the 2nd week in a row, ABC's Castle stood as the most-watched TV show in the 10 o'clock hour, besting CBS' Hawaii Five-0 (+7%) and more than tripling NBC's The Playboy Club (+205%).

In addition, Castle registered as the #1 series in the hour for the 2nd week running with Adults 18-34 and across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

· In Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, ABC's Castle was up over it year-ago performance on the evening.

"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-10:00 p.m.)

Growing its audience from its first hour to its second hour against CBS' "Two and a Half Men"-fueled comedy block from 8:00 -10:00 p.m., "Dancing with the Stars" once again made ABC the most-watched net in its time period, outdrawing CBS by 2.0 million viewers (16.0 million vs. 14.0 million).

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 42% currently, from 38% 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.
