"Mixology-R" (9:30-10:00 p.m. - 3.7 million and 1.1/3 in AD18-49):

A repeat telecast of the "Mixology" series debut episode from last Wednesday gained additional sampling of 3.7 million viewers, on top of its premiere average of 5.0 million.

Spiking over its lead-in (+119%/+45%) to earn second place at 10:00 p.m., ABC's "Castle" outperformed CBS' "Intelligence" in the hour by wide margins in Total Viewers (+53% - 8.1 million vs. 5.3 million) and in Adults 18-49 (+33% - 1.6/4 vs. 1.2/3).

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 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. 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.
