ABC's "Castle" is Monday's 2nd-Most Watched Scripted Program

ABC Monday Prime (8:00-11:00 p.m. - 11.5 million and 1.8/5 in AD18-49):

ABC was Monday's most-watched TV network for the 4th consecutive week, topping runner-up NBC by 7% (11.5 million vs. 10.7 million). ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" was the night's most-watched TV program overall.

"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-10:00 p.m. - 12.7 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49):

From 8:00-10:00 p.m., ABC's "DWTS" (12.7 million) finished as the night's most-watched TV series for the 8th week running, leading NBC's "The Voice" head to head by 1.9 million viewers (10.8 million) and Fox's premiere of "24: Live Another Day" by 4.7 million viewers (8.0 million).

"Castle" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 8.9 million and 1.6/5 in AD18-49):

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Castle" finished as Monday's 2nd-most-watched scripted program to NBC's "The Blacklist," outdrawing Fox's highly-promoted 2-hour premiere of "24: Live Another Day" (8:00-10:00 p.m.) by 11% (8.9 million vs. 8.0 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 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. 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.
