ABC is Monday's Most-Watched Net for the 4th Week Running/"Scandal" Repeat Tops NBC's Original "Smash" at 10pm

Some early info on ABC's Monday, ahead of the regular press release.

With Dancing and a repeat of the Scandal pilot up against all-original programming on the other nets, ABC qualified as the most-watched net on Monday for the 4th week running, outdrawing CBS by 3.5 million viewers, NBC by 4.1 million viewers and nearly doubling the audience of Fox (+94%). In addition among Adults 18-49, ABC beat out Fox's original drama lineup by 14% (Bones/House) on the night.

Monday's most-watched TV program for the 3rd time in 4 weeks, ABC's Dancing with the Stars topped its 2-hour time slot for the 4th consecutive week, beating out NBC's The Voice in head-to-head competition by 5.7 million viewers. In Adults 18-49, ABC's Dancing soared above Fox's combo of Bones and House by 38% in the time period.

· While The Voice declined for the 5th straight week to hit a new season low, ABC's DWTS held 100% of its Adult 18-49 audience week to week. In addition, the ABC unscripted series grew over the prior week by 6% in Men 18-49, by 14% in Teens 12-17 (best-since premiere) and by 7% in Kids 2-11.

Gaining additional sampling after its series debut telecast this past Thursday, ABC's repeat Scandal topped NBC's first run Smash by 12% to finish as the 2nd-most-watched TV show in the 10 o'clock hour to CBS original Hawaii Five-0.

Monday's most-watched TV program for the 3rd time in 4 weeks, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" topped its 2-hour time slot for the 4th consecutive week, beating out NBC's "The Voice" in head-to-head competition by 5.7 million viewers (16.1 million vs. 10.4 million). In Adults 18-49, ABC's "Dancing" soared above Fox's combo of "Bones" and "House" by 38% in the time period (2.9/8 vs. 2.1/6).

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 43% currently, from 40% at the same point in 2011. 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.
