Castle 10-11pm (10.9 million and 2.2/6): Building 10% on its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 10pm, ABC's Castle held even with its week-earlier season premiere and was up 16% over its performance on the same night last year (1.9/5 on 10/1/12).

"Dancing with the Stars" (8:00-10:00 p.m. - 12.8 million and 2.0/5 AD18-49)

ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" stood as the 2nd-most-watched TV show of the evening to "The Voice," topping Fox's dramas in the 2-hour time period by 5.3 million viewers (7.5 million) and CBS' comedies by 5.6 million viewers (7.2 million).

"Castle" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 10.9 million and 2.2/6 AD18-49)

Building 10% on its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 10:00 p.m., ABC's "Castle" held even with its week-earlier season premiere and was up 16% over its performance on the same night last year (1.9/5 on 10/1/12). In the hour, "Castle" (10.9 million, 2.2/6 and 2.9/7) beat CBS' Hostages (6.0 million, 1.5/4 and 2.0/5) by even wider margins week to week, leading by 82% in Total Viewers, by 47% in Adults 18-49 and by 45% in Adults 25-54. Live + 3 Day Ratings: Last week's season opener of ABC's Castle gained a full Adult 18-49 rating point in the L+3 numbers, going from a 2.2 rating to a 3.2 rating and also added 3.4 million viewers to its next-day totals (going from 11.5 million to 14.9 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 48% currently, from 45% 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.
