In addition, the ABC sitcom surged ahead of CBS' The Big Bang Theory in the Live + 7 Day numbers, overshadowing the CBS sitcom by nearly a full Adult 18-49 rating point (+0.8 - 8.2 vs. 7.4). Initially in the Live + Same Day statistics, Modern Family ranked as TV's #5 series of the week in the young adult demo, behind The Voice, both editions of American Idol and The Big Bang Theory.

ABC's Grey's Anatomy emerged as the #1 broadcast drama of the week in Adults 18-49 (5.6), leapfrogging over CBS' NCIS (5.4) to lead by two-tenths of a rating point. In the originally reported Live + Same Day statistics, the CBS program was TV's #1 broadcast drama and led the ABC program by a margin of two-tenths of a rating point.

· Among Adults 18-49, ABC delivered 5 of the Top 10 biggest gainers via time-shifted viewing, with each show picking up at least 1.2 rating points over their first-reported Live + Same Day numbers: Modern Family (+2.7 rating - 5.5 to 8.2), Grey's Anatomy (+1.6 rating - 4.0 to 5.6), Once Upon a Time (+1.3 rating - 3.0 to 4.3), Revenge (+1.3 rating - 2.5 to 3.8) and Private Practice (+1.2 rating - 2.2 to 3.4).

Season-to-Date DVR Playback (9/19/11-2/12/12):

On average for the 2011-12 season, ABC's Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy are the season's Top 2 biggest gainers via time-shifted viewing among Adults 18-49 (picking up 2.4 rating points and 1.6 rating points, respectively), while the ABC sitcom is the season's biggest overall gainer among Total Viewers (+4.79 million).
