At 8pm, ABC's The Middle took second place to Idol, beating its NBC comedy competition (Whitney) by 4.9 million viewers and by 92% in Adults 18-49.

Building week to week and taking second at 8:30pm, ABC's The Neighbors dominated its freshman comedy competition in the half-hour, nearly doubling the audience of NBC's Guys with Kids by a best-ever 97% and leading by 50% in Adults 18-49. The Neighbors was up over the prior week by 1.0 million viewers and by 13% in Adults 18-49.

Spiking over its lead-in at 9pm (+111%), ABC's Modern Family beat its nearest scripted competition in the half-hour by 41% in Adults 18-49 (CBS' Criminal Minds).

In the 9:30pm half-hour, ABC's Suburgatory grew week to week by 26% in Total Viewers and by 17% 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).

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.
