"Scandal" Hits a 6-Week High Against the "Sound of Music" and Builds on Its "Grey's" Lead-In by a Best-Ever 29%

ABC Thursday Prime (8-11pm - 6.6 million and 2.2/6 in AD18-49): Despite facing NBC's high-rated 3-hour live The Sound of Music, ABC was up 5% from its most recent regular Thursday lineup two weeks ago to deliver a 5-week high on the night in Adults 18-49 - since 10/31/13. In Adults 18-49, ABC's Scandal finished as the #2 TV series of the night for its 4th straight telecast, behind only CBS' The Big Bang Theory. In addition, Scandal and Grey's Anatomy continued to stand as Thursday's Top 2 dramas with young adults.

Scandal (10-11pm - 8.6 million and 3.1/8 in AD18-49): Building on its Grey's lead-in against the final hour of NBC's Sound of Music by a best-ever 29% at 10pm, ABC's Scandal was up over it last telecast two weeks ago by 7% in Adults 18-49 to earn a 6-week high - since 10/17/13.

On average, Scandal is up 57% over the same point last year in Adults 18-49, making it TV's fastest-growing returning series this season and ABC's highest-rated show in the time slot since Lost during the 2007-08 season.

· Season to date in the C3 Adult 18-49 ratings, ABC's Scandal (3.58 rating) just moved ahead of NBC's Blacklist (3.55 rating) in the most recent week of data as the season's #1 broadcast drama in the key advertiser measure.

From 8:00-9:00 p.m., ABC's "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" grew over its most recent telecast in Total Viewers (+2%), Adults 18-49 (+11%) and Adults 18-34 (+50%). In fact, the ABC drama earned its highest young adult numbers since October 24, 2013.

"Grey's Anatomy" (9:00-10:00 p.m. - 7.5 million and 2.4/6 in AD18-49):

Building on its lead-in by 140% at 9:00 p.m., ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" beat out its regular time period competition in Adults 18-49, leading CBS' comedies in the hour (+9% - "The Crazy Ones"/"Two and a Half Men" = 2.2/6) and more than doubling Fox's "Glee" (+118% - 1.1/3).

On average, "Scandal" is up 57% over the same point last year in Adults 18-49, making it TV's fastest-growing returning series this season and ABC's highest-rated show in the time slot since "Lost" during the 2007-08 season.

· Season to date in the C3 Adult 18-49 ratings, ABC's "Scandal" (3.58 rating) just moved ahead of NBC's "Blacklist" (3.55 rating), with the most recent week of data, to become the season's No. 1 broadcast drama in the key advertiser measure.

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 46% 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.
