ABC Wednesday Prime (8-11pm - 5.8 million and 1.6/5 in AD18-49): Despite airing a repeat Modern Family at 9pm against all-original lineups on NBC (w/The Voice at 8pm), Fox and CBS, ABC beat out Fox with a 2-hour American Idol by 14% (1.6/5 vs. 1.4/5).

The Middle (8-8:30pm - 7.2 million and 1.8/7 in AD18-49): At 8pm against Survivor and NBC's special The Voice, The Middle outdelivered Idol for the 3rd week in a row in the half-hour by a best-yet 29% among Adults 18-49 (1.8/7 vs. 1.4/5). The ABC comedy held even week to week in Adults 18-49 and was up in Adults 18-34 (+10%) and Men 18-34 (+25%) to tie a season best on the latter measure. Season to date, the ABC comedy is up in Total Viewers (+1%) and Adults 18-49 (+4%).

The Goldbergs (8:30-9pm - 6.5 million and 1.9/6 in AD18-49): Building on its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 8:30pm (+6%), The Goldbergs beat Idol for its 4th straight original and led by its biggest margin yet (+58% - 1.9/6 vs. 1.2/4). The Goldbergs held steady with its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating. Season to date, the ABC sophomore comedy is pacing well ahead of its year-ago benchmarks in Adults 18-49, boosting its half-hour year to year by 50% and up over its own performance last year on Tuesday 9pm by 17%.

Modern Family (9-9:30pm - 5.8 million and 1.7/5 in AD18-49): At 9pm, ABC's repeat Modern Family beat Fox's Idol in the half hour by 21% in Adults 18-49 (1.7/5 vs. 1.4/4) and nearly tied NBC's The Voice-led L&O: SVU (1.8/6). Modern matched its best repeat number this season in Adults 18-49.

black-ish (9:30-10pm - 6.1 million and 1.9/6 in AD18-49): Building on its repeat Modern Family lead-in by 12%, ABC's black-ish ranked #1 in the 9:30pm half-hour for the 3rd straight week in Adults 18-49 (1.9/6-tie). Compared to the year-ago night with an original comedy in the half-hour (3.7 million and 1.2/4 for Mixology on 4/9/14), black-ish continued to deliver sharp year-over-year time-period improvement for ABC among Total Viewers (+65%) and Adults 18-49 (+58%). Despite the repeat lead-in, black-ish held 100% of its Men 18-34 delivery week to week to match its best number since November - since 11/19/14.

Nashville (10-11pm - 4.7 million and 1.1/4 in AD18-49): During the 10pm hour, ABC's Nashville beat out CBS' CSI: Cyber for second place among Adults 18-34 (0.8/3) and key Women (W18-34/W18-49). In the Live + 3 Day numbers, last week's episode of Nashville shot up 54% in Adults 18-49 over its Live + Same Day number (1.3 rating to a 2.0 rating) making it among the biggest gainers on the night.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2014-15 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.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate Nielsen measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.
