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

ABC ran a competitive second on Thursday among Total Viewers (8.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.8/8), while finishing No. 1 on the evening for the 2nd week in a row in Adults 18-34 and key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49).

Widening its winning advantage in the time period week to week, "Grey's" (4.4/12) outdelivered runner-up NBC's comedies by +38% ("The Office"/"Outsourced" - 3.2/9), CBS' "CSI" by +47% (3.0/8) and Fox's "Fringe" by +132% (1.9/5).

In the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Private Practice" paced a close second to CBS' "The Mentalist" among Adults 18-49, while topping NBC's "The Apprentice" by 107% (2.9/8 vs. 1.4/4).

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 38% currently, from 32% 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.
