� In Total Viewers (6.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.4/7), "Modern Family" posted its best-ever repeat numbers.

"The Middle" (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

Building on its lead-in at 8:30 p.m. (+13%), ABC's "The Middle" (2.7/8) finished as the No. 1 regular program in its half-hour among Adults 18-49, beating the second half-hour of Fox's "Human Target" premiere by 8% (2.5/7) and NBC's "Mercy" by 69% (1.6/5).

� "The Middle" achieved series-high numbers among Adults 18-49 and across each of the key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

"Modern Family" (9:00-9:30 p.m.)

Surging from its lead-in by 44% at 9:00 p.m. against "American Idol," ABC's "Modern Family" (3.9/10) ranked as the No. 1 scripted show in its half-hour among Adults 18-49 and as Wednesday's No. 1 scripted TV program for the 2nd telecast in a row, ahead of CBS' "Criminal Minds" (3.8/10).

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 35% currently, from 29% at the same point in 2009. 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.
