· From 8:30-9 p.m. ET, the regular-slot debut of "Guys With Kids" (1.6/9 in 18-49, 4.8 million viewers overall) built on its 18-49 lead-in by 14 percent and topped last year's premiere-week 18-49 rating in this slot for NBC by 23 percent (1.6 vs. 1.3). In a highly competitive time period versus Fox's "The X Factor," CBS's "Survivor" and ABC's season premiere of "The Middle," "Guys With Kids" also improved on NBC's average in the time period last season by 23 percent in 18-49 rating (with a 1.6 vs. a 1.3, L+SD non-sports) and was up 20 percent in total viewers (4.782 million vs. 3.970 million). "Guys With Kids" matched NBC's highest in-season 18-49 rating in this time period since February 1, 2012.

· From 9-11 p.m. ET, the 14th season premiere of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (2.1/6 in adults 18-49, 7.1 million viewers overall) captured NBC's best in-season 18-49 rating in that time period since April 27, 2011 and biggest in-season overall audience since January 11, 2012. This is the strongest "SVU" rating in any slot since a 2.2 on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2011 from 10-11 p.m. From its first half-hour to its fourth, "Law & Order: SVU" grew by 22 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 2.2 from a 1.8) and by 24 percent or 1.5 million person in total viewers (7.6 million vs. 6.1 million), to pull within 0.2 of a point of #1 in 18-49 among ABC, CBS and NBC for the 10:30-11 p.m. half-hour.

· "SVU" topped NBC's time-period average last season by 62 percent in 18-49 rating (with a 2.1 vs. a 1.3) and by 34 percent in total viewers (7.097 million vs. 5.297 million) in a highly competitive time period versus ABC's premieres of "Modern Family," "Neighbors" and "Revenge," CBS's debuts of "Criminal Minds" and "CSI" and Fox's "The X Factor."
