Building its numbers from its first to second hour, "The Bachelor" moved up to No. 1 in Adults 18-49 from 9:00-10:00 p.m. to tie Fox's "House"-driven "Alcatraz" for the time-period lead.

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

Marking season-best repeat numbers, ABC's encore "Castle" more than doubled the audience of NBC's original "Rock Center with Brian Williams" (6.7 million vs. 3.3 million) in the 10 o'clock hour and beat out the NBC news program by 75% in Adults 18-49 (1.4/4 vs. 0.8/2).

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 43% currently, from 39% at the same point in 2011. 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.
