Coming Off its 5th Straight Emmy for Best Comedy, ABC's "Modern Family" Encores Outdeliver Originals of CBS' "Extant" and Fox's "SYTYCD"

"Motive" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 3.7 million and 0.9/3 in AD18-49):

In the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's season finale of "Motive" was up for the 2nd week in a row in Adults 18-49 (+13% - 0.9/3 vs. 0.8/3) to equal a 10-week high - since 6/18/14. Among Adults 18-49 from 10:00-11:00 p.m., "Motive" nearly tied the second hour of CBS' "Extant" (pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share - 0.9/3 vs. 1.0/3) and beat NBC's "America's Got Talent"-led "Taxi Brooklyn" by 13% (0.9/3 vs. 0.8/3).

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 48% 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.
