In Adults 18-49, "The Middle" outdelivered NBC's "Mercy" by 71% (1.4/4) and Fox's "Human Target" by 9% (2.2/6). In fact among young Adults, the ABC freshman comedy has been the highest-rated scripted show in its half-hour on 7 of its last 8 original telecasts.

"Ugly Betty" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Ranking No. 2 in the 10 o'clock hour among Adults 18-49 (1.7/5), ABC's "Ugly Betty" posted a season-high rating in the key young Adult sales demo.

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.
