Live + Same Day Results:

"The Astronaut Wives Club" (8:00-9:00 p.m. - 4.3 million and 0.8/3 in AD18-49):

"Rookie Blue" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 4.2 million and 0.7/2 in AD18-49):

ABC's "Rookie Blue" shot up 17% in Adults 18-49 (0.7/2 vs. 0.6/2) over its week-ago Fast Affiliate rating and was even with its adjusted National number to match a season high.

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 measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.

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.
