More than doubling its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 9:00 p.m. (+133%), ABC's "Modern Family" (2.8/8) shot to the top of its half-hour, beating CBS' "Criminal Minds" by 27% (2.2/7), Fox's "American Idol" by 65% (1.7/5) and NBC's "L&O: SVU" by 100% (1.4/4).

· On average, "Nashville" is ABC's highest percentage gainer this season from TV Playback and Top 3 among all broadcast series, with originals shooting up 80% from a 1.5 L+SD rating to a 2.7 Live + 7 Day Adult 18-49 rating.

· Season to date, "Nashville" is growing its overall audience from the same point in its freshman season (7.0 million vs. 6.9 million).

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.
