CRIMINAL MINDS was up +1% in households (from 8.6/14) and +3% in adults 18-49 (from 4.0/11) compared to last year's season premiere. CRIMINAL MINDS topped "X-Factor" in the hour by over 1.5 million viewers (vs. 12.56m).

Note: DVR penetration is at 42%, up from 38% last year. Last Fall, Live+7 audiences for original entertainment series on CBS gained over 1.8 million viewers, on average, over Live+ Same Day ratings, more than any other network. This season, we expect DVR penetration to continue to increase and, as a result, we expect DVR playback audiences to grow as well.
