· For the new ABC comedy's 8th time in as many airings, Suburgatory generated strong improvement for the Net over the year-ago comedy (Better with You) in the half-hour with viewers (+20%) and young adults (+32%).

Building on its lead-in at 9pm to win its time slot by huge margins over its nearest competition, ABC's Modern Family soared to the top of the night as Wednesday's #1 TV program in viewers and young adults. In fact the ABC comedy stood as Wednesday's #1 TV show with Adults 18-49 for the 9th straight airing this season.

· Topping its year-ago telecast on each original airing this season, the Modern Family surged year to year by 2.0 million viewers and by 22% in Adults 18-49.

During the 9:30pm half-hour, ABC's Happy Endings dominated its slot by 42% among Adults 18-49 over its nearest competition (CBS) and nearly doubled the delivery of Fox's original Mobbed (+93%). Winning its the time period, the ABC sophomore comedy registered as the #1 scripted series in its slot for its 8th broadcast with Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34.
