Boosted by a winning performance from the 2-hour "Brothers & Sisters" event, ABC ranked No. 1 on Sunday night among Adults 18-49 (3.6/9) for the 3rd week in a row.

"America's Funniest Home Videos" (7:00-8:00 p.m.)

Competing against Fox's NASCAR overrun in the 7 o'clock hour, ABC's "America's Funniest Home Videos" stood as the No. 1 non-sports show in its time slot in Adults 18-49 (2.7/8), beating out original competition on CBS by 23% ("60 Minutes" � 2.2/6) and on NBC by 170% ("Best of Tracy Morgan" � 1.0/3).

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 30% currently, from 23% 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.
