"DWTS" has led its time-slot in all 7 of its telecasts this season in Total Viewers, while winning its time period in 6 of 7 airings in Adults 18-49.

� Winning each of its half-hours in viewers and young adults, "DWTS" built its audience by 3.8 million viewers (18.1 million to 21.9 million) and by 30% in Adults 18-49 (4.0/11 to 5.2/13) from start to finish.

"Surviving Suburbia" (9:30-10:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Surviving Suburbia" saw week-to-week increases of 13% in Total Viewers (10.9 million vs. 9.7 million), 11% in Adults 18-34 (2.0/5 vs. 1.8/5) and 6% in Adults 25-54 (3.5/8 vs. 3.3/7).

"Castle" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Castle" was up over the previous week by 15% in Total Viewers (8.4 million vs. 7.3 million) and by 16% Adults 18-49 (2.2/6 vs. 1.9/5). The freshman drama finished second in the 10 o'clock hour, topping NBC's veteran drama, "Medium," by 14% in Total Viewers (8.4 million vs. 7.4 million) and ranked No. 1 among Adults 18-34 (1.7/4-tied) and Women 18-34 (2.1/6-tied).

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 31% currently, from 24% 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.
