Up over Week 2 of Season 15 by 1.7 million viewers and 10% in Adults 18-49, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" was the most-watched show in its 2-hour time period, outdrawing the season opener of "The Voice" by 5% in head-to-head competition (14.1 million vs. 13.4 million).

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 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. 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.
