During the 9:00 p.m. half-hour, ABC's freshman season finale of "The Goldbergs" was up 8% week to week in Adults 18-49 to equal its 2nd-highest rating since the beginning of April - since 4/1/14. The ABC comedy also increased over the prior week in Adults 18-34 (+11%) and Women 18-49 (+23%).

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 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. 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.
