NBC also aired an original line-up, with Chuck and the 2-hour return of Law & Order: Los Angeles. The Network won all 6 half-hours on Monday evening in viewers and young adults.

· ABC qualified as Monday's most-watched network for the 5th week in a row and led the night in Adults 18-49 for the 4th time in 5 weeks.

From 8-10pm, ABC's Dancing with the Stars towered over each of its half-hours in viewers and young adults, while building its numbers throughout its broadcast. Monday's #1 TV show in viewers and young adults, ABC's DWTS ran as the night's most-watched program overall for the 4th consecutive week. The veteran ABC unscripted series beat out second-place Fox in its time period by 13.0 million viewers and by 72% in Adults 18-49.

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 40% currently, from 36% at the same point in 2010. 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.
