ABC spins the numbers for Tuesday, January 6.

[via press release from ABC]

Marvel's Agent Carter Opens with ABC's Best Slot AD18-49 Rating in Over 1 Year

Please Note: the time slot high for Agent Carter was the best in more than 1 year (since 11/5/13)... not 2 years. Sorry for any confusion.

Agent Carter: Live + 3 = 9.5 million/2.5 rating and Live + 7 = 10.2 million/2.7 rating

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 2014. 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.
