"Dracula" is up 38% versus NBC's regular-series debut in the slot last fall (1.3 on Sept. 28, 2012). Versus NBC's average in the time period last season in 18-49, "Dracula" is up 50% in 18-49 (1.8 vs. 1.2, L+SD non-sports).

· "Dracula" is the 2nd highest rated Friday drama premiere in three years in 18-49 (behind "Grimm's" 2.1 on Oct. 28, 2011) and before that, "Blue Bloods'" 2.2 on Sept. 24, 2010).
