ABC's "Bachelor Pad" topped all 4 of its half-hours to win its 8:00-10:00 p.m. time period (6.4 million) by a margin of 1.3 million viewers over its nearest competition (5.1 million - NBC). In fact, the ABC unscripted series finished as Monday's most-watched TV show.

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 42% currently, from 38% 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.
