· ABC improved on the same Monday last summer (8/17/09) by 38% in Adults 18-49 (1.8/5 vs. 1.3/4), up year to year for the 3rd straight Monday and for the 9th time on the last 10 weeks.

"Bachelor Pad" (8:00-10:01 p.m.)

"Bachelor Pad" led its 2-hour time period for the 2nd consecutive week among Women 18-49 (2.7/8) and Women 25-54 (3.2/8). The new summer series grew its young adult audience by 24% (1.7/6 to 2.1/6) from its first half-hour to its final-half hour.

"Dating in the Dark" (10:01-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Dating in the Dark" ranked No. 1 against its CBS and NBC competition in the hour Adults 18-49 (1.5/4) and Adults 18-34 (1.5/4), while leading the hour overall among Women 18-34 (2.1/7) and Women 18-49 (2.1/6).

· "Dating in the Dark" saw increases in the time period for ABC over the same night last year in Total Viewers (+12% - 3.7 million vs. 3.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (+67% - 1.5/4 vs. 0.9/3).

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 37% currently, from 32% 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.
