Despite its 8pm time period without a network lead-in, ABC's Fresh Off the Boat essentially tied NBC's The Voice-led Undateable at 9pm in Adults 18-49 (1.5/5), while outdelivering week 2 of NBC's One Big Happy at 9:30pm (1.2/4) and Fox's finale of The Mindy Project at 9:30pm (0.8/3). The ABC freshman comedy was on par with its last original in the Fast Affiliate ratings (1.4/5 vs. 1.5/5), which adjusted up 1-tenth in the Nationals.

For the 2nd week in a row, the ABC drama was #1 in its slot among key Men demos (M18-34/M18-49). S.H.I.E.L.D. was steady week to week in Adults 18-49 (1.5/5 vs. 1.6/5).

· Based on its most recent Live + 7 Day ratings (3/3/15), S.H.I.E.L.D. tied its 2nd-biggest percentage lift this season, shooting up +81% over its L+SD rating (from a 1.6 in L+SD to a 2.9 in L+7) to stand as Tuesday's #1 biggest broadcast gainer among Adults 18-49. On average season to date, S.H.I.E.L.D. is improving the time slot for ABC by 27% in the key young adult sales demo (2.8/8 vs. 2.2/6) over the same point last season.

Forever (10-11pm - 4.4 million and 0.9/3 in AD18-49): At 10pm with its first original in 3 weeks, ABC's Forever returned mostly steady to beat NBC's The Night Shift in the hour among Total Viewers (+7% - 4.4 million vs. 4.1 million) and nearly tie among Adults 18-49 (0.9/3 vs. 1.0/3). The freshman drama improved Tuesday's 10pm hour for ABC from the year-ago night with original programming and, on average, season to date is boosting its slot by 70% in Adults 18-49.

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.
