ABC's "Last Resort" and "Grey's Anatomy" Return Up After Prior Week's Preemptions

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

Up against big competition during the 8 o'clock hour from NBC's special The Voice, CBS' top-rated comedies (The Big Bang Theory/Two and a Half Men) and Fox's The X Factor Results Show premiere, ABC freshman Last Resort returned after its preemption the prior week with gains of 8% in Adults 18-49 and 25% in Adults 18-34 from two weeks ago. The new show also spiked 25% with Men 18-34 over its last telecast to equal its best number since early October - since 10/11/12.

· The ABC freshman drama continued to deliver double digit year-over-year growth in its time period. In fact on average, Last Resort is boosting its hour for ABC by 29% in Total Viewers and by 47% in Adults 18-49 over the same point last season with original drama programming.

More than doubling its lead-in among Adults 18-49 (+129%) at 9pm, ABC's Grey's Anatomy won its hour to register as Thursday's #1 drama for its 5th straight telecast this season. Leading the 9 o'clock hour by double-digit percentages among Adults 18-49, Grey's beat out CBS' Person of Interest by 10%, Fox's Glee by 33% and NBC's The Voice-fueled comedies (The Office/Parks and Recreation) by 45%.

· Season to date, Grey's Anatomy is up over the same point last year in both viewers (+6%) and young adults (+2%).

ABC's Scandal once again posted a close second-place finish to CBS' Elementary in the 10 o'clock hour (pacing within 2-tenths of a rating point in Adults 18-49), while running way ahead of NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams in Total Viewers (+39%) and Adults 18-49 (+82%). Additionally, Scandal continued to beat out Elementary to stand as the #1 scripted TV show in its slot in Adults 18-34 and across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

· Posting large increases from DVR playback, on average this season the ABC 10 o'clock drama surges by 2.4 million viewers and by 40% in Adults 18-49 over its first-reported L+SD numbers to its Live + 7 Day results.

· Scandal tied its 2nd-strongest Adult 18-49 rating this season. In addition, the show matched a season high with Women 18-49, equaling the series 2nd-highest number ever.

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.
