The only new comedy on the Big 4 so far this fall to remain closer to its premiere rating in week 3 is "Bad Judge" (within 0.1).

· Last night's "A-to-Z" retained 83% of its adults 18-49 lead-in from "Bad Judge," up from last week's 77%. "A-to-Z" also held 88% of its lead-in in adults 18-34 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and retained 91% in women 18-34 (1.0 vs. 1.1).

· "Parenthood" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) maintained 100% of its 1.3 rating of the prior two weeks and has now remained with a tenth of a point of its 1.4 season premiere through weeks two, three and four Note that the season-premiere 1.4 matched the highest "Parenthood" rating since Oct. 3, 2013. Despite the 10 p.m. hour, "Parenthood" maintained its 18-49 rating from half-hour to half-hour (1.3 vs. 1.3) and grew half-hour to half-hour in total viewers (4.2 million vs. 4.1 million).

· L+3: The previous week's "Parenthood" on Oct. 9 grew by +65% in 18-49 (to a 2.08 from a 1.26) and 1.8 million viewers overall (to 6.088 million from 4.250 million) going from L+SD to L+3.

· Upscale: "Parenthood" is the #1 most upscale primetime series on the Big 4 networks in, indexing at a 175 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes ("most current" L+3 results through the opening three weeks of the season, 100 represents an average concentration of those homes).
