Delivering a strong 91% lead-in retention at 8:30 p.m. with young adults, ABC's "The Real O'Neals" once again dominated its freshman Fox comedy competition in the half-hour ("Grandfathered") in Total Viewers (+74% - 3.3 million vs. 1.9 million) and Adults 18-49 (+43% - 1.0/3 vs. 0.7/3). In fact, "The Real O'Neals" topped all 4 of Fox's comedies on the night in Total Viewers and tied "New Girl" (at 8:00 p.m.) in Adults 18-49 as the night's No. 2 comedy, behind only "Fresh Off the Boat."

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2015-16 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.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 48% 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.
