During the 9pm hour, ABC's Revenge beat CBS' competing drama The Good Wife for the 8th straight telecast this season, leading by 29% in Adults 18-49. In addition, for its the 3rd consecutive telecast, Revenge beat out its non-sports competition on CBS (The Good Wife) and Fox (Family Guy/The Cleveland Show) by wide margins in Adults 25-54 and across the key Women demographics. Jumping in TV playback, on average this season Revenge jumps from its L+SD to L+7 numbers by 2.9 million viewers and by 1.2 Adult 18-49 rating points (+43%).

· On average, Revenge is growing from the same point in its freshman season among both Total Viewers (+3%) and Adults 18-49 (+6%).

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.
