From 9:00-11:00 p.m., ABC's "Mysteries of the Castle: Beyond Downtown Abbey" on a special "20/20" outdrew NBC's competing "Women of SNL" special by 20% in Total Viewers (4.8 million vs. 4.0 million) and ranked No. 1 across key Women against its CBS and NBC competition.

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 49% currently, from 47% 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.
