ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" Continues to Beat Out NBC's Competing Freshman Drama, "Life," in the 10 O'clock Hour in Viewers and Young Adults

Wednesday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC led its fourth straight Wednesday night among young adults, beating out its closest competition by 6% in Adults 18-49 (3.7/10 vs. 3.5/9 - CBS) and by 42% in Adults 18-34 (3.4/10 vs. 2.4/7 � 3-way tie between CBS, NBC and Fox).

"Pushing Daisies" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

For the third straight week (on each of its telecasts), ABC's "Pushing Daisies" won its 8 o'clock time period across each of the adult demographics: Adults 18-34 (3.2/10), Adults 18-49 (3.6/10) and Adults 25-54 (4.0/10). In the key Adult 18-49 sales demo, "Daisies" dominated its nearest competition in the hour by 16% (NBC = 3.1/9). For the second straight week, "Daisies" stood as No. 2 TV show on Wednesday among Adults 18-34, behind only ABC's "Private Practice."

� Winning its time period for the first time in Men 18-34, "Pushing Daisies" jumped 21% over the prior week among hard-to-reach young men (2.3/8 vs. 1.9/7). The new ABC series also delivered the No. 1 position in the hour with Men 18-49 (2.6/8).

"Private Practice" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Wednesday's No. 1 TV program in Adults 18-49 for the fourth week running, ABC's "Private Practice" was the definitive time period leader. In the hour, ABC's "Private Practice" (4.3/11) outdelivered CBS' second-place "Criminal Minds" by 10% (3.9/10), NBC's third-place and fading "Bionic Woman" by 30% (3.3/8) and Fox's fourth-place "Kitchen Nightmares" by 34% (3.2/8). In addition to standing as the highest-rated show of the night in Adults 18-49, "Private Practice" was also Wednesday's No. 1 TV program with Adults 18-34 (4.2/12) and across all key women demographics: W18-34 (6.1/16), W18-49 (6.2/15) and W25-54 (6.9/15).

"Dirty Sexy Money" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" defeated its freshman drama competition during the 10 o'clock hour, beating NBC's "Life" by 1.1 million viewers (8.8 million vs. 7.7 million) and by 11% in Adults 18-49 (3.1/9vs. 2.8/8). The new ABC series ranked No. 1 in the hour among Adults 18-34 (2.7/8-tie) and Women 18-34 (3.9/11).

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.
