From 8:00-10:00 p.m. opposite competition including the penultimate episode of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" stood as Monday's most-watched TV show for the 2nd straight week, outdrawing NBC's "The Voice" in head-to-head competition by 13% (14.3 million vs. 12.6 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 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.
