The new ABC drama also held second in the slot with Total Viewers (4.2 million).

Boasting strong year-to-year time-period improvement, Forever grew its hour from the year-ago night by 48% in Total Viewers and by 53% in Adults 18-49 (Killer Women = 3.0 million and 0.7/2 on 2/11/14).

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate measure to gauge the size of the TV audience

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2014-15 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.
