"How to Live with Your Parents" Retains 100% of Its "Modern Family" Lead-in/"Nashville" Is Up 50% Over Its Last Encore
At 9pm, ABC's repeat Modern Family took second to Idol and outdelivered its scripted competition in the half-hour on CBS by 11% (Criminal Minds) and on NBC by 100% (L&O: SVU). Up over its most recent repeat in viewers (+19%) and young adults (+11%), Modern Family generated its most-watched replay since the beginning of January - since 1/2/13.
Retaining 100% of its Modern Family Adult 18-49 lead-in, ABC's How to Live with Your Parents took second in the 9:30pm half-hour to Idol. And although its encore Modern Family lead-in was off 47% from last week's original telecast, How to Live with Your Parents retained 80% of its week-ago Adult 18-49 delivery.
During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Nashville was up 50% over its last repeat in Adults 18-49, equaling its best-ever repeat performance.
