Thursday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC finished a solid second on Thursday in Total Viewers (9.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.0/8) to CBS with its airing of the highly-promoted 2-hour premiere of "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains." The Network ranked No. 1 on the evening with Adults 18-34 (2.6/8-tie) for the 6th time in 7 weeks. ABC also topped the evening with Women 18-34, leading its nearest competition by 34% (3.9/11 vs. 2.9/8-CBS).

� Despite the heightened competition on the night, ABC increased its overall Thursday audience (9.1 million) for the 2nd consecutive week.

"The Deep End" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

From 8:00-9:00 p.m. against the opening hour of "Survivor," ABC's "The Deep End" posted week-to-week gains in both Total Viewers (+12% - 5.7 million vs. 5.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (+15% - 1.5/4 vs. 1.3/4).

"Grey's Anatomy" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Opposite the second half of "Survivor," ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" ranked No. 1 in its time slot with Adults 18-34 (3.9/11) and all key Women: W18-34 (5.9/16), W18-49 (6.3/15) and W25-54 (6.9/15).

"Private Practice" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Private Practice" won Thursday's 10 o'clock hour among Adults 18-34, leading its nearest competition by 29% (2.7/9 vs. 2.1/7 � CBS' "The Mentalist"). It was the 12th time in 13 original telecasts this season for the ABC sophomore drama to hold the No. 1 series position in the hour with Adults 18-34.

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.
