"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.

ABC's "Body of Proof" was the only drama to grow week to week in the hour with viewers or young adults, as CBS' "Unforgettable" and NBC's "Parenthood" each declined.

· 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.
