ABC's "No Ordinary Family" Draws its Biggest Audience in 5 Weeks

Some early points on ABC's Tuesday, ahead of the regular press release.

Finishing #2 on the evening (10.8 million) to CBS, ABC drew its biggest overall audience on the night with its regular line up since 10/5/10.

Up over its most-recent telecast two weeks ago in viewers (+5%) and young adults (+10%), ABC freshman No Ordinary Family outdrew time-period veteran The Biggest Loser by 1.2 million viewers (7.8 million vs. 6.6 million) and matched the NBC unscripted series in Adults 18-49 (2.2/6). The ABC freshman series also topped Biggest Loser by solid margins in Adults 25-54, across all key Men (M18-34/M18-49/M25-54) and among Teens 12-17. No Ordinary Family gained audience throughout its broadcast during Tuesday's highly-competitive 8 o'clock hour against Fox's original Glee and CBS' top-rated NCIS, building by 7% in Total Viewers and by 10% in Adults 18-49 from its first half-hour to its second half-hour. No Ordinary Family drew its biggest audience in 5 weeks - since 10/5/10

Winning its 9 o'clock time period in viewers (16.8 million) and young adults (3.4/9), ABC's Dancing with the Stars: The Results attracted its largest audience in the hour in 6 weeks and posted its top Adult 18-49 rating in 4 weeks - since 9/28/10 and 10/12/10, respectively. Former NFL star Kurt Warner was the eighth celebrity to be eliminated from the ABC dance competition this season. DWTS: The Results registered as the 2nd-most watched TV show on Tuesday, behind only CBS' NCIS.

Returning after it preemption the prior week for election coverage, ABC's Detroit 1-8-7 once again ranked as the 2nd-most-watched TV show in the 10 o'clock hour, outdrawing NBC's sophomore drama, Parenthood, for the 7th consecutive telecast (+2.8 million viewer advantage - 7.8 million vs. 5.0 million). The ABC drama also topped its NBC drama competition with Adults 25-54 for the 6th time in 7 telecasts this season, including each of the past 3 matchups.

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 38% currently, from 33% 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.
