At 10:00 p.m., ABC's "Rookie Blue" ranked as the most-watched TV show in its time period for the 7th week running.

In fact, "Rookie Blue" is up 10% summer to summer in Total Viewers (6.8 million vs. 6.2 million), delivering its most-watched season in 3 years - since Summer 2010.

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 48% currently, from 45% 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.
