Starting out the night for ABC at 8pm against CBS' top-rated NCIS, ABC's Last Man Standing stood as the 2nd-most-watched TV show overall, topping Fox's Glee by 2.3 million viewers and NBC's The Biggest Loser 12 by 2.5 million viewers. The new broad-skewing ABC comedy continued to beat out NBC's veteran Biggest Loser among Adults 18-49 (+18%), while once again finishing #2 in its time slot with Adults 25-54 and key Men (M18-49/M25-54).

· ABC self-starter Last Man Standing qualified as Tuesday's most-watched comedy overall, outdrawing Fox's runner-up Glee-led New Girl at 9pm by 2.4 million viewers.

· Last Man Standing improved its half-hour for ABC over the year-ago night by wide margins in viewers (+21%) and young adults (+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 43% 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.
