Quick Take for Monday, December 8, 2014 (Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Ratings)

ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight" Premiere Post Double-Digits Increases Year to Year in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 to its Best Numbers Ever

ABC's "Castle" was the No. 1 series in Adults 18-49 during the 10:00 p.m. hour, ahead of NBC's "State of Affairs" (1.6/5) and CBS' "NCIS: LA" (1.6/5). In addition, "Castle" delivered more viewers than NBC's "The Voice"-driven "State of Affairs" for the 4th week running (8.0 million vs. 6.3 million).

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.
