CMA Country Christmas (8-10pm - 8.9 million and 1.6/4 in AD18-49): Despite going head to head with NBC's The Voice from 8-10pm (on the year-ago night, it aired from 9-11pm against the final hour of The Voice into Blacklist), CMA Country Christmas was up for the 2nd consecutive year in both Total Viewers (+20% - 8.9 million vs. 7.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (+7% - 1.6/4 vs. 1.5/4). In fact CMA Country Christmas delivered its 2nd-best-ever numbers in viewers and young adults.

Castle (10-11pm - 8.4 million and 1.5/4 in AD18-49): Although airing out of a smaller lead-in at 10pm, after following the Dancing finale the prior Monday, ABC's Castle was the most-watched series in its hour, drawing a larger audience than NBC's State of Affairs for the 3rd time in as many tries (8.4 million vs. 7.0 million) and ran in a virtual tie with Adults 18-49 (1.5/4 vs. 1.6/5).

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 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.
