ABC's Tuesday Grows Year to Year for 4 Straight Weeks

Some early info on ABC's Tuesday, ahead of the regular press release.

Tuesday Night (8-11pm)

ABC's Tuesday line-up of DWTS the Results Show, Lost and V, continued to deliver impressive year-to-year returns, as the Net was up over the same night last year for the 4th week in a row. ABC's numbers surged over the same Tuesday a year ago (4/21/09), also a night of all-original programming, by 1.5 million viewers (9.6 million vs. 8.1 million) and by 47% in Adults 18-49 (2.8/8 vs. 1.9/5).

DWTS the Results Show (8-9pm)

Continuing to improve its new earlier 8pm time period year to year for ABC against Fox's American Idol, ABC's DWTS the Results Show finished as the second-most-watched program in its hour (13.4 million), outdrawing NBC's Biggest Loser by 6.1 million viewers (7.3 million) and CBS' NCIS encore by 3.6 million viewers (9.8 million). Star of Jon and Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin was the 4th celebrity eliminated from the dance competition this season.

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 36% currently, from 31% at the same point in 2009. 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.
