Featuring its lineup of "Dancing with the Stars," "Samantha Who?" and "The Bachelor," ABC qualified as Monday's most-watched TV network for the seventh week in a row, surpassing second-place CBS by 4.6 million viewers (16.4 million vs. 11.8 million).

"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-9:45 p.m.)

"Samantha Who?" (9:45-10:15 p.m.)

The season's No. 1 rookie comedy in viewers and young adults, as well as the most-watched new show overall, ABC's "Samantha Who?" led its time period for the fourth straight week in Total Viewers (12.9 million), Women 18-49 (6.2/13) and Women 25-54 (7.0/15). The new ABC sitcom also ranked No. 1 in its slot with Adults 18-49 (4.3/10). The ABC freshman comedy built on its lead-in among Adults 18-34 (3.2/8 vs. 3.1/8).

Placing second in its time period to CBS veteran "C.S.I.: Miami," ABC's "The Bachelor" topped NBC's "Journeyman" during the 10 o'clock hour by 4.1 million viewers (9.2 million vs. 5.1 million) and by 62% in Adults 18-49 (3.4/9 vs. 2.1/5). The ABC unscripted series ranked No. 1 in its time slot among Women 18-34 (4.1/11) and Women 18-49 (5.1/13-tie).

� "The Bachelor" achieved season highs with Men 18-34 (1.8/5) and Men 18-49 (1.8/5).

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 just over 9% at the same point in 2006 up to nearly 21% 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.
