Jumping over its lead-in to win the 9pm half-hour, ABC's Modern Family beat out its nearest competition in the slot by 4% in Total Viewers (Criminal Minds) and by 18% in Adults 18-49 (The Voice). In addition to finishing as Wednesday's #1 TV show in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, Modern Family was also the night's highest-rated program with Adults 18-34 and Adults 25-54 for its 4th consecutive telecast.

· Equaling the series' 2nd highest Adult 18-49 number, Nashville rose week to week by 5% in viewers and by 11% in young adults.

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 43% 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.
