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

Leading each half-hour from 8:00-10:00 p.m. to finish as Monday's top show, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" drew 6% more viewers than NBC's "The Voice" in head-to-head competition in the 2-hour slot (13.3 million vs. 12.5 million).

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

Castle ranked No. 1 in the 10:00 p.m. hour for the 2nd week running with Total Viewers (10.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.0/5-tied).

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 48% currently, from 44% at the same point in 2012. 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.
