The Neighbors was up over the prior week by 1.0 million viewers and by 13% in Adults 18-49.

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Nashville ranked #1 in Adults 18-34 and won its slot in Women 18-34 for its 4th straight original telecast. Season to date Nashville is delivering big increases via TV playback, gaining 55% in Adults 18-49 (+1.1 rating points - from a 2.0 L+SD rating to a 3.1 L+7 rating). The new ABC drama also adds on 2.8 million viewers to its preliminary L+SD average in the L+7 finals (6.2 million to 9.0 million).

The new ABC drama also adds on 2.8 million viewers to its preliminary L+SD average 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.
