ABC's "The Middle" and "The Neighbors" Grow Against "Idol"

Info on ABC's Wednesday, ahead of the regular press release.

ABC ranked #2 on Wednesday night in Adults 18-49 to a 2-hour Idol-driven Fox. ABC's Modern Family was once again Wednesday's #1 scripted TV show across all key Adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54).

At 8pm, ABC's The Middle grew week to week in Total Viewers (+4%) Adults 18-49 (+9%) to 9-week highs on both measures (since 11/14/12) and ranked as the #1 scripted show in its half-hour.

At 8:30pm, The Neighbors built over the prior week in viewers (+3%) and young adults (+6%) and was the top-rated scripted show in its slot among Adults 18-49.

Spiking over its lead-in at 9pm (+116%), ABC's Modern Family led its nearest scripted competition in the half-hour by 37% in Adults 18-49 (CBS' Criminal Minds). Modern Family was up week to week with Adults 18-34 (+3%).

In the 9:30pm half-hour, ABC's Suburgatory built its overall audience week to week (+3%) and held all of its Adult 18-49 number. Like its lead-in, Suburgatory was up over the prior week with Adults 18-34 (+13%)

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Nashville took second to CBS' CSI in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, while wining in the hour with Women 18-34 for its 3rd straight telecast. Season to date, Nashville is one of the Top 5 biggest percentage gainers in TV playback and the top new show (tied w/Revolution), jumping by 63% in Adults 18-49 (+1.2 rating points - from a 1.9 L+SD rating to a 3.1 L+7 rating). The ABC freshman drama also adds on 2.8 million viewers to its preliminary L+SD tally in the L+7 finals (6.2 million to 9.0 million).

· Season to date, "Nashville" is one of the Top 5 biggest percentage gainers in TV playback and the top new show (tied w/"Revolution"), jumping by 63% in Adults 18-49 (+1.2 rating points - from a 1.9 L+SD rating to a 3.1 L+7 rating). The ABC freshman drama also adds on 2.8 million viewers to its preliminary L+SD tally in the L+7 finals (6.2 million to 9.0 million).

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 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. 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.
