Live + 7 Day Ratings for the week of 11/4/13 (Week #7): ABC's regular Wednesday lineup was pre-empted this week for the CMA Awards.

Based on Nielsen's TV playback data among Adults 18-49, ABC shot up to a 2.6 rating among Adults 18-49 in the final Live + 7 numbers, growing 30% over its first reported Live + Same Day rating. In the non-sports numbers, ABC ranks #1 among Adults 18-49 this season (2.80 rating), beating NBC (2.78), CBS (2.78) and Fox (2.35).

(+3.8 million - series high), Revenge (+2.8 million) and Once Upon a Time (+2.7 million). In addition, ABC's Shark Tank delivered a season-high build in TV playback this week in Total Viewers (+1.6 million).

In the final Live + 7 Day ratings, ABC delivered 3 of the week's Top 10 highest-rated broadcast shows in Adults 18-49 (versus 1 in the initial Live+SD ratings): Grey's Anatomy (4.6) - #5 (up from #11), Scandal (4.4) - #7 (up from #10) and S.H.I.E.L.D. (4.2) - #10 (up from #15).
