Outdelivering NBC and Fox by wide margins in Adults 18-49, the ABC dancing results show beat out the second hour of "The Biggest Loser" by 43% (2.1/5) and the "New Girl"/"Breaking In" comedy combo by 50% (2.0/5).

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 40% 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.
