Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Results:

ABC Sunday Prime (7-11pm - 4.5 million and 1.3/4 in AD18-49): On a night filled with professional sports competition, including NBC's Sunday Night Football (Packers-Saints), Fox's World Series Game 5 and another big primetime NFL overrun on CBS (Colts-Steelers), ABC's Once Upon a Time ranked as Sunday's #1 scripted broadcast in Adults 18-49 (2.3/6), pacing well ahead of CBS' NFL overrun-fueled series on the night: Madam Secretary (1.5/4) and The Good Wife (1.4/4).

Revenge (10-11pm - 4.3 million and 1.1/3 in AD18-49): During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Revenge continued to deliver strong time period improvement for ABC, growing its hour year to year by 30% in Total Viewers (4.3 million vs. 3.3 million) and by 22% in Adults 18-49 (1.1/3 vs. 0.9/2).

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 48% 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.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2013-14 season for premiere telecast or an average for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.
