· Up over the year-ago night by 2.7 million viewers, ABC increased its Tuesday audience year to year for the 7th week running.

Taking second in the 8 o'clock hour to CBS' first-run NCIS, ABC's recap special DWTS: The Encore drew more overall viewers than originals of Fox's Glee and NBC's The Biggest Loser: Couples.

Up against stiff all-original competition in the 9 o'clock hour, ABC's DWTS Results Show qualified as the most-watched TV show in its time slot for the 6th consecutive week, topping CBS' NCIS: LA by 11%, NBC's The Voice by 29% and Fox's comedies (Raising Hope/Traffic Light) by 290%. In addition, ABC's dancing results program stood as Tuesday's 2nd-most-watched TV show, trailing only CBS' top-rated NCIS. Reality television star Kendra Wilkinson was the sixth celebrity dancer to be eliminated from the dance competition this season.

· On average, Body of Proof is improving the hour for ABC by 6.1 million viewers and by 9% in Adults 18-49, over the comparable nights last year.

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 41% 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.
