Building on its Adult 18-49 lead-in (+7% - 1.5/4 vs. 1.4/4) at 8:30 p.m., ABC's "Cougar Town" attracted 16% more Total Viewers than Fox's time-slot premiere of "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" (4.4 million vs. 3.8 million).

· Despite airing out of a repeat "Last Man Standing" this week, ABC's "Cougar Town" saw its Viewer count grow week to week and equaled a season high with Women 18-34.

"Body of Proof" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Increasing from its lead-in by 12% at 10:00 p.m., ABC's repeat "Body of Proof" ranked No. 2 in the hour, topping NBC's "Decision 2012" by 1.6 million viewers (4.7 million vs. 3.1 million). In addition, the ABC repeat drama tied the NBC News program among Adults 25-54 (1.3/3).

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 40% at the same point in 2011. 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.
