"Rookie Blue" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

The most-watched series in Thursday's 10 o'clock hour for the 2nd week in a row, ABC's "Rookie Blue" defeated NBC's just-renewed "Hannibal" by wide margins in Total Viewers (+142% - 5.8 million vs. 2.4 million), Adults 25-54 (+45% - 1.6/4 vs. 1.1/3) and Adults 18-49 (+20% - 1.2/4 vs. 1.0/3).

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 48% currently, from 44% 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.
