ABC's "Revenge" Returns Up with Its Top Numbers Since Early January

Please Note: On the first Sunday of Daylight Saving Time, overall TV usage declined notably during the opening hours of the night. Adult 18-49 PUTs were off -6% during the 7 o'clock hour (30.8 vs. 32.7) and down -7% in the 8 o'clock hour (35.7 vs. 38.2).

Spiking over its Adult 18-49 lead-in (+57%) at 8pm, ABC's Once Upon a Time ran neck-and-neck with Amazing Race for the lead in the hour, closing the gap week to week and pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point. The ABC drama once again won its time slot with key Women (W18-34/W18-49) to stand as Sunday's top-rated broadcast series. Despite facing declining viewing levels week to week, Once Upon a Time was up 5% over its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 number. Once Upon a Time was also up week to week in Total Viewers (+1%), Adults 18-34 (+6%) and Kids 2-11 (+11%).

Up 11% in Adults 18-49 from its last telecast 3 weeks ago before The Oscars, ABC's Revenge returned with strong lead-in retention (91%), beating the first hour of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice by 25% and CBS' The Good Wife by 33% during the 9 o'clock hour. In addition, the sophomore drama made ABC the #1 broadcaster in the hour with Adults 25-54 and across all key Women demos. Building for its 2nd airing in Total Viewers (+13%) and Adults 18-49 (+11%), Revenge posted its best numbers since the beginning of January - since 1/6/13. Season to date, Revenge has gained 21% in Adults 18-49 over the same point in its freshman season.

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Red Widow retained 80% of its week ago 2-hour series debut in Adults 18-49. Based on the first 3 days of TV playback (Live + 3 Day Ratings), Red Widow (on 3/3/13 from 9-11pm) grew over its Live +Same Day numbers by 1.8 million viewers (7.1 million to 8.9 million) and by 27% in Adults 18-49 (1.5 rating to a 1.9 rating).

"Once Upon a Time" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Spiking over its Adult 18-49 lead-in (+57%) at 8:00 p.m., ABC's "Once Upon a Time" ran neck-and-neck with CBS' "Amazing Race" for the lead in the hour, closing the gap week to week and pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point (2.2/6 vs. 2.3/7). The ABC drama once again won its time slot with key Women (W18-34/W18-49) to stand as Sunday's top-rated broadcast series.

· Despite facing declining viewing levels week to week, "Once Upon a Time" was up 5% over its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 number. "Once Upon a Time" was also up week to week in Total Viewers (+1%), Adults 18-34 (+6%) and Kids 2-11 (+11%).

"Revenge" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Up 11% in Adults 18-49 from its last telecast 3 weeks ago before "The Oscars," ABC's "Revenge" (2.0/5) returned with strong lead-in retention (91%), beating the first hour of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" by 25% (1.6/4) and CBS' "The Good Wife" by 33% (1.5/4) during the 9 o'clock hour. In addition, the sophomore drama made ABC the No. 1 broadcaster in the hour with Adults 25-54 and across all key Women demos.

"Red Widow" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Red Widow" retained 80% of its week ago 2-hour series debut in Adults 18-49 (1.2/3 vs. 1.5/4).

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 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.
