Airing against a surging "American Idol," ABC freshman "Cougar Town" finished as the No. 2 scripted program in its half-hour among Total Viewers (6.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.8/7) to CBS' veteran "Criminal Minds," while registering as the No. 1 scripted show in its slot with Adults 18-34 (2.6/7-tie) and Women 18-34 (3.2/8).

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.
