Up against competition from "The Voice" and one of the final episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" on St. Patrick's Day, ABC's 18th season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" (15.0 million and 2.5/7) was up 6% in viewers and held even in Adults 18-49, compared to the last time that the show's opener had to face "The Voice" in Fall 2012 (14.1 million and 2.5/7 on 9/24/12). The premiere of "DWTS" was the No. 1 most social broadcast series on Monday with 176,265 tweets.

Please note: Last Fall the show premiered prior to the start of the official season against much lesser competition and last Spring the opener faced "The Biggest Loser" instead of "The Voice" on NBC. Also with an additional minute to come into the mix this afternoon, "Dancing's" numbers often adjust up in the National ratings.

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 2013. 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.
