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).

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.
