ABC's Repeat Comedies Hit Highs on Wednesday/"Off the Map" is #1 in Key Demos

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

With a mix of 3 repeat and 2 original programs, up against Fox's 2-hour American Idol, CBS' all-original line-up and NBC's mostly original line-up, ABC ranked #2 Wednesday night in Adults 18-49, tying CBS and beating out fourth-place NBC by 50%.

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 39% currently, from 35% at the same point in 2010. 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.
