ABC's "Nashville" Hits a Best-Since-Debut Adults 18-49 Number

Up against the season premiere of American Idol, ABC earned second place on Wednesday night in Adults 18-49. ABC's Modern Family was Wednesday's #1 scripted TV show across all key Adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54). Opposite Idol from 8-10pm, each of ABC's comedies retained 90% or better of their week-ago Adult 18-49 ratings.

Delivering solid week to week Adult 18-49 retention against Idol in the 8pm hour, ABC's The Middle (96%) and The Neighbors (90%) ran as the #1 scripted series in their respective half-hours. Growing week to week in Teens 12-17, The Middle and The Neighbors each delivered their highest teen ratings since November 14, 2012.

At 9pm, ABC's Modern Family held 91% of its week-earlier Adult 18-49 number and beat out its nearest scripted competition in the half-hour by 59% (CBS' Criminal Minds).

In the 9:30pm half-hour, ABC's Suburgatory retained 92% in Adult 18-49 number week to week.

Building its Adult 18-49 audience for its 4th straight original telecast, ABC's Nashville ran neck-and-neck with CBS' CSI for the 10 o'clock hour's lead in Adults 18-49 (pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share). The ABC freshman drama beat out CSI to win the hour among Adults 18-34 and key Women (W18-34/W18-49). Gaining 5% week to week in Adults 18-49, Nashville delivered its highest rating since its debut telecast on October 10, 2012.

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 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. 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.
