Airing against original comedies on CBS and the 2-hour Monday premiere of "24" of Fox, ABC's "The Bachelor" saw week-to-week increases in both Total Viewers (9.1 million vs. 8.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.2/8 vs. 3.1/8). In addition, "The Bachelor" turned in ABC's highest ratings in the 2-hour time period among Adults 18-34 (3.2/8) and Women 18-34 (4.6/11) since season premiere Monday 3 1/2 months ago � since 9/22/08. "The Bachelor" topped NBC's "Superstars of Dance" from 8:00-10:00pm by 2.0 million viewers and by 68% in the key young adult sales demo (7.1 million & 1.9/4 in Adults 18-49).

� "The Bachelor" dominated its time period and ranked as Monday's No. 1 TV program among Women 18-34 for the second consecutive week

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 29% currently, from 22% at the same point in 2008. 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.
