"Ugly Betty" ranked a dominant No. 1 in the slot in its core audience of Women 18-34, outrunning second-place "Survivor" by 41% (4.5/14 vs. 3.2/10).

"Grey's Anatomy" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Thursday's No. 1 TV program in Adults 18-49 for the second week in a row, ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" widened its winning advantage over CBS' "C.S.I." to 17% (7.4/18 vs. 6.3/16), up from 7% the prior week.

"Big Shots" also delivered the No. 1 position in the time period with Women 18-34 (5.2/15) and Women 18-49 (5.0/13).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year to year rating comparisons: Year to year rating trends based on the Live + Same Day data stream may be somewhat distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has more than doubled from 9% at this time last year up to 20% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. Therefore, 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.
