ABC's Grey's and Modern Family Continue as TV's Biggest DVR Gainers

DVR Playback for the week of 10/11/10 (Week #4):

For the 4th consecutive week this season, ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and "Modern Family" qualified as TV's Top 2 biggest gainers from the first-reported numbers to the DVR finals in Adults 18-49. "Grey's Anatomy" stood as the week's top gainer, picking up on an additional 1.5 rating points and jumping by +33% from a 4.6 rating to a 6.1 rating, from the Live + Same Day to the Live + 7 Day Adult 18-49 averages. ABC's "Modern Family" surged by 1.4 rating points in the DVR finals, from a 4.8 rating to a 6.2 rating (+29%).
