ABC's "Scandal" caught CBS' "Elementary" to rank No. 1 in the 10 o'clock hour with Adults 18-49 (2.2/6), while leading by wide margins over NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams" in Total Viewers (+97% - 6.7 million vs. 3.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (+144% - 2.2/6 vs. 0.9/2).

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 46% currently, from 43% 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.
