� "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" attracted its largest audience ever on ABC since its debut on the Network in 2001.

"He's a Bully, Charlie Brown" (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

� "He's a Bully, Charlie Brown" was up by nearly 1.0 million viewers and by 6% in Adults 18-49 compared to its debut performance the previous year (9.5 million & 3.3/8 in Adults 18-49 on 11/20/06).

"Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

For the third time in four weeks, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" outdrew Fox's "House" in Total Viewers (20.7 million vs. 16.8 million � season best + 3.9 million) to win the 9 o'clock hour and stand as Tuesday's most-watched TV show.

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 10% at the same point in 2006 up to 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.
