Topping CBS' dramas (The Good Wife/The Mentalist) in the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's 666 Park Avenue ranked as the #1 non-sports program in its time slot for the 2nd week in a row with key Adults (AD18-34/AD18-49).

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 46% currently, from 42% 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.
