ABC's "Red Widow" Jumps 20% to a Best-Since-Premiere Adults 18-49 Number

Building on its Adult 18-49 lead-in by 62% at 8pm, ABC's Once Upon a Time finished a strong second to CBS' basketball-fueled combo of 60 Minutes and Amazing Race in viewers and young adults. The ABC drama won the hour across all key women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54) and Teens 12-17, and once again stood as Sunday's top-rated broadcast series in W18-49. Please Note: Once Upon a Time is seeing considerably larger ratings increases after day of air, as compared to last Fall and the year-ago Spring. The Adult 18-49 increases for Once Upon a Time from L+SD to L+7 have gone from 42% last Fall up to 48% this Spring, and is also showing a much larger gain than the same point last Spring (39%).

At 9pm, ABC's Revenge beat out the opening hour of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice by 17% in Total Viewers and by 20% in Adults 18-49. Additionally, the sophomore drama made ABC the #1 broadcaster in the time period among Women 18-49. On average, Revenge has grown its Adult 18-49 audience this season by 10% over the same point in its freshman season.

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Red Widow grew by 20% week to week in Adults 18-49 to hit a best-since premiere number. From 10-11pm, Red Widow ranked #1 among Adults 18-34 (tying the second hour of Celebrity Apprentice) and won among Women 18-34. Based the most recent Live + 7 Day ratings (for the 3/10/13 telecast), Red Widow jumped over its Live +Same Day numbers by 2.2 million viewers (5.3 million to 7.5 million) and spiked 55% in Adults 18-49 (1.1 rating to a 1.7 rating).

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 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.
