"Modern Family" (9:00-9:30 p.m.)

Surging from its lead-in by 40% at 9pm against "American Idol," ABC's "Modern Family" stood as the highest-rated scripted show in its half-hour for its 3rd straight airing among Adults 18-49, beating CBS' "Criminal Minds" by 14% (4.2/10 vs. 3.7/9).

"Cougar Town" (9:30-10:00 p.m.)

Airing against a surging "American Idol," ABC freshman "Cougar Town" finished as the No. 2 scripted program in its half-hour among Total Viewers (6.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.8/7) to CBS' veteran "Criminal Minds," while registering as the No. 1 scripted show in its slot with Adults 18-34 (2.6/7-tie) and Women 18-34 (3.2/8).

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 35% currently, from 29% at the same point in 2009. 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.
