ABC Wins 3rd Straight Thursday - Scandal Hits 6-Week High and Murder a 3-Week High

ABC Thursday Prime (8-11pm - 9.2 million and 2.8/9 in AD18-49): ABC won its 3rd straight November Sweep Thursday in Adults 18-49, outdistancing 2nd-place CBS by 22% (2.8/9 vs. 2.3/7). The Network nearly tripled the young adult deliveries for NBC (+180% - 1.0/3) and Fox (+180% - 1.0/3).

· ABC was up for the 2nd week in viewers (+2%) and young adults (+4%). In Adults 18-49, Scandal (+10%) and How to Get Away with Murder (+4%) posted week-to-week gains. Scandal delivered a 6-week high (since 10/2/14) and HTGAWM hit a 3-week high (since 10/23/14).

· ABC's Scandal (3.2/9), Murder (2.9/9) and Grey's (2.4/7) continued their run as Thursday's Top 3 dramas in Adults 18-49 (over CBS' Elementary, NBC's Parenthood and Fox's Bones and Gracepoint). In addition, Scandal and HTGAWM trailed only CBS' The Big Bang Theory as the top-rated series of the night and are once again tracking as the week's top broadcast dramas in Adults 18-49.

· From 10-11pm, ABC's How to Get Away with Murder (2.9/9) beat its combined drama competition for the 3rd consecutive week in Adults 18-49, topping CBS' Elementary by 142% (1.2/4) and NBC's Parenthood by 190% (1.0/3).

· The Net improved sharply from the year-ago November Sweep Thursday (7.1 million and 2.1/6 on 11/14/13), jumping 30% in viewers and 33% in young adults. And season to date, ABC's Thursday is growing by double digits from the same point last year in Total Viewers (+29%) and Adults 18-49 (+21%) for its top numbers on the night in 5 years - since the comparable weeks of the 2009-10 season. ABC's HTGAWM and Scandal stand as the season's Top 2 broadcast dramas in the key young adult sales demo, respectively.

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.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2013-14 season for premiere telecast or an average for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.
