In the 10 o'clock hour, a repeat of the "Quantico" debut episode from Sunday garnered extra sampling on Tuesday, drawing an additional 4.2 million Total Viewers. The new ABC drama held steady from its first half-hour to its second among young adults, while its CBS (-5%) and NBC (-26%) competition declined on the half-hour.

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.
