Almost tripling its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 9pm (+192%), ABC's Modern Family dominated its half-hour, beating runner-up Criminal Minds by 40%, Fox's Idol-led So You Think You Can Dance by 52% and NBC's L&O: SVU by 150%. Modern Family was up week to week in viewers (+8%) and young adults (+6%).

The biggest week-to-week gainer in the 10 o'clock hour week to week, ABC's Nashville grew 13% in Adults 18-49 to equal its highest rating in nearly 4 months - since 1/23/13. In addition, the ABC freshman increased its overall audience for the 2nd week running (+4%) to deliver its most-watched telecast in 5 weeks - since 4/10/13.
