During the 9'clock hour among young adults, ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" (3.0/8) beat out CBS' "Person of Interest" by 3% (2.9/7), Fox's "Glee" by 36% (2.2/6) and NBC's comedies by 88% (1.6/4 - "The Office"/"Parks and Recreation").

"Scandal" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's "Scandal" caught CBS' "Elementary" to rank No. 1 in the 10 o'clock hour with Adults 18-49 (2.2/6), while leading by wide margins over NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams" in Total Viewers (+97% - 6.7 million vs. 3.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (+144% - 2.2/6 vs. 0.9/2). Additionally, "Scandal" led by double to triple digits over "Elementary" with Adults 18-34 and across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).

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.
