Despite coming out of repeat programming at 9:30 p.m. against the final half-hour of Fox's 2-hour Wednesday finale of "The X Factor" and NBC's 2-hour "Miss Universe Pageant," "A Special Edition of 20/20: The Year with Katie Couric" was up over its year-ago telecast (on 12/15/11) in both Adults 18-49 (+7% - 1.6/5 vs. 1.5/4) and Adults 25-54 (+5% - 2.1/5 vs. 2.0/5).

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.
