Housewives Stands as Sunday's #1 Entertainment Show

Some early points on ABC's Sunday, ahead of the regular press release.

As CBS (overrun during the 7 o'clock hour) and NBC (Sunday Night Football) were driven by the NFL coverage on Sunday night, ABC beat out its non-sports driven competition on Fox in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

Building on its lead-in at 8pm, ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition topped Fox's animated comedies in the hour by 2 million viewers (The Simpsons/Cleveland Show).

Against stiff competition on the night, including another big Sunday Night Football contest on NBC (Philadelphia Eagles-San Francisco 49ers), and an NFL primetime overrun-fueled CBS, ABC's Desperate Housewives registered as Sunday's #1 entertainment TV show among Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. Housewives also finished #1 against non-sports competition in its 9 o'clock time slot in viewers and young adults. For the 3rd week in a row, Housewives qualified as Sunday's #1 TV program overall across all key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

Opposite the conclusion of the NFL game and CBS' combo of Undercover Boss and CSI: Miami, ABC's Brothers & Sisters finished as the #1 TV show in the 10 o'clock hour across the key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

As CBS (overrun during the 7 o'clock hour) and NBC ("Sunday Night Football") were driven by the NFL coverage on Sunday night, ABC beat out its non-sports driven competition on Fox in both Total Viewers (8.9 million vs. 5.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.6/7 vs. 2.5/7).

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Building on its lead-in at 8:00 p.m., ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" topped Fox's animated comedies in the hour by 2.0 million viewers (8.2 million vs. 6.2 million � "The Simpsons"/"Cleveland Show").

"Desperate Housewives" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Against stiff competition on the night, including another big Sunday Night Football contest on NBC (Philadelphia Eagles-San Francisco 49ers), and an NFL primetime overrun-fueled CBS, ABC's "Desperate Housewives" registered as Sunday's No. 1 entertainment TV show among Total Viewers (12.2 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.8/9). "Housewives" also finished No. 1 against its non-sports competition in its 9 o'clock time slot in viewers and young adults. For the 3rd week in a row, "Housewives" qualified as Sunday's No. 1 TV program overall across all key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

"Brothers & Sisters" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Opposite the conclusion of the NFL game and CBS' combo of "Undercover Boss" and "CSI: Miami," ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" finished as the No. 1 TV show in the 10 o'clock hour across the key Women demos: W18-34 � 3.2/9, W18-49 � 4.0/11 and W25-54 � 4.9/12.

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 38% currently, from 33% 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.
