From 8:00-9:00 p.m. among Adults 18-49, "DWTS" (2.1/7) nearly tied CBS' "Big Brother" (2.3/8) and more than doubled the delivery of Fox's "Utopia" (+110% - 1.0/3).

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 48% 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.
