ABC's "Grey's" Wins at 9pm to Finish as Thursday's #1 Drama in Adults 18-49

Some early info on ABC's Thursday, ahead of the regular press release.

During the 8 o'clock hour opposite CBS' top-rated The Big Bang Theory and Rob along with the Thursday premiere of Fox's American Idol, ABC's Winter Wipeout outdrew NBC's comedies (30 Rock/Parks and Recreation) by 1.7 million viewers. The broad-skewing ABC unscripted series also outdelivered the NBC comedy block with Adults 25-54, Women 18-49, Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11. Although facing strong competition, Wipeout's audience built by 7% in viewers and by 18% in Adults 18-49 from its first half-hour to its second half-hour.

Jumping over its lead-in by 89% to win the 9 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49, ABC's Grey's Anatomy defeated CBS' Person of Interest by 3%, NBC's comedies (The Office/Up All Night) by 42% and Fox's Idol-driven The Finder by 55%. ABC's Grey's Anatomy finished as Thursday's #1 drama in the key young adult sales demo for its 11th consecutive first-run airing this season.

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 2011. 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.
