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

Standing as the night's most-watched program, a special Wednesday airing of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars Results" ranked No. 1 at 8:00 p.m. in Total Viewers (15.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.2/9-tied). "DWTS Results" also led its time period among Women 18-49 (4.4/11) and Adults 25-54 (4.3/11). Actress and entrepreneur Susan Lucci was the seventh dancer to leave the competition this season.

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

Retaining 100% of its young adult lead-in, ABC's "Private Practice" attracted its largest audience (9.5 million) of the season, while posting a best-since-premiere performance in Adults 18-49 (3.2/8). The medical drama built on its lead-in and ranked as Wednesday's top program among Adults 18-34 (2.9/8), Women 18-34 (4.6/12) and Women 18-49 (4.9/11).

� "Dirty Sexy Money" was up from the prior week in Total Viewers (6.2 million vs. 6.1 million) and across all key women demos: W18-34/W18-49/W25-54.

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.
