ABC's Repeat Comedy Line-up Dominates Fox's Comedy Encores

· At 8pm, ABC's replay of The Middle dominated its repeat comedy competition in the half-hour among Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, leading NBC's Up All Night by 1.9 million viewers and 30% in young adults and Fox's Raising Hope by 2.8 million viewers and 44% in young adults.

· At 8:00 p.m., ABC's replay of "The Middle" dominated its repeat comedy competition in the half-hour among Total Viewers (5.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.3/4), leading NBC's "Up All Night" by 1.9 million viewers and 30% in young adults (3.4 million and 1.0/3) and Fox's "Raising Hope" by 2.8 million viewers and 44% in young adults (2.5 million and 0.9/3).

Head to head against Fox's repeat "New Girl" in the half-hour, "Modern Family" more than doubled the Fox sitcom's overall audience (+115% - 5.6 million vs. 2.6 million) and nearly doubled in Adults 18-49 (+90% - 1.9/5 vs. 1.0/3).

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 43% currently, from 38% 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.
