Leading its 3-hour time period from 8:00 -11:00 p.m., ABC's 2nd-season premiere of "Bachelor Pad" emerged as the most-watched TV show overall on Monday night, as well as the No. 1 program across all key Women demos. The ABC unscripted series ranked No. 1 in 5 of 6 half-hours of the evening with viewers, and in 4 of 6 half-hours among young adults.

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 37% 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.
