"Modern Family - WED 8PM" (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

Opposite the opening half-hour of Fox's 2-hour "American Idol" (Top 10 female performances), ABC's rebroadcast airing of "Modern Family" finished as the No. 1 scripted show at 8:00 p.m. in Adults 18-49 (1.7/5), beating NBC's original "Mercy" by 13% (1.5/4) and tying CBS' original "Old Christine" (1.7/5).

� The ABC freshman comedy stood as Wednesday's No. 1 scripted TV show in Adults 18-34 (3.1/9) for its 4th first-run telecast in a row.

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 36% currently, from 30% 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.
