"Body of Proof" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Drawing its biggest audience this season and surging 17% week to week in Adults 18-49, ABC's "Body of Proof" (10.2 million and 2.1/5) ran No. 2 in the 10 o'clock hour, beating NBC's "Parenthood" (5.0 million and 2.0/5) by 5.2 million viewers and by 5% in young adults.

· Continuing to demonstrate much stronger lead-in retention for ABC in the hour year to year, "Body of Proof" boosted its time period over the same night last year ("Detroit 1-8-7" = 7.8 million and 1.7/5) by double-digit percentages in Total Viewers (+31%) and Adults 18-49 (+24%).

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 42% currently, from 38% at the same point in 2010. 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.
