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

During the 8 o'clock hour, ABC's "Pushing Daisies" took second in the hour among the key women demos, beating NBC's "Knight Rider" for the third consecutive week by double digits across the Women demos: W18-34 +64% (2.3/7 vs. 1.4/4), W18-49 +25% (2.5/7 vs. 2.0/5) and W25-54 +12% (2.9/7 vs. 2.6/6).

"ABC News Vote '08: Presidential Debate" (9:00-10:31 p.m.)

Based on Nielsen's "sustained" ratings, ABC News' coverage of the Presidential Debate drew 10.6 million viewers.

"Vote 2008: Analysis-WED" (10:31-11:00 p.m.)

From 10:31-11:00 p.m. ET, taking second in the time slot in Total Viewers, ABC News' "Vote 2008: Analysis-TUE" beat CBS' "Campaign '08-Debate ANL" in Total Viewers (8.9 million vs. 7.2 million), Adults 18-49 (2.5/6 vs. 2.2/5) and Adults 25-54 (3.1/7 vs. 2.6/6).

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 28% currently, from 20% at the same point in 2007. 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.
