ABC's "Dancing" Outdraws NBC's "Voice" to Lead Monday and at Season Highs "Castle" Tops "Blacklist" for the 4th Straight Week

ABC Monday Prime 8-11pm (13.6 million and 2.2/6 in AD18-49): ABC stood as Monday's most-watched network, outdrawing NBC for the 2nd week in a row (13.6 million vs. 11.2 million) by increasing margins week to week. ABC's Dancing drew a larger audience than The Voice for the 2nd week running (14.4 million vs. 11.6 million) to lead the night, and Castle outdrew Blacklist for the 4th consecutive week (11.9 million vs. 10.3 million) as Monday's most-watched scripted series. The Net was up week to week to deliver a season high in viewers and a 6-week high in young adults (since 9/23/13).

Please Note: ABC's Monday lineup was preempted in Milwaukee and Green Bay for local NFL coverage (1.07% of the U.S.).

Also in its time period, Dancing outdrew CBS' 2-hour comedy block by over 6 million viewers (8.3 million). Brant Daugherty was eliminated this week. Growing week to week in Total Viewers, Dancing drew its biggest audience in 7 weeks - since its season premiere on 9/16/13.

Castle 10-11pm (11.9 million and 2.4/7 in AD18-49): For the 4th week in a row, ABC's Castle outdrew NBC's Blacklist (11.9 million vs. 10.3 million) as the top series in the 10 o'clock hour and as Monday's most-watched scripted program overall. Building for the 2nd week in viewers and young adults, Castle hit season highs with its best performance since May 2012 (since 5/7/12). In addition, Castle was up over its year-ago telecast (10.0 million and 1.9/5 on 11/5/12) in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

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 46% 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.
