"Scandal" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's repeat "Scandal" beat out NBC's repeat "Law & Order: SVU" by double digits in Total Viewers (+16% - 4.3 million vs. 3.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (+33% - 1.2/4 vs. 0.9/3).

· "Scandal" grew week to week by 19% in viewers and by 20% in young adults to deliver the series 2nd-highest-ever encore numbers.

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.
