"Save My Life: Boston Trauma" (10:00-11:00 p.m. - 3.3 million and 0.7/2 in AD18-49):

In the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Save My Life: Boston Trauma" grew week to week in Total Viewers (+3% - 3.3 million vs. 3.2 million), Adults 18-49 (+17% - 0.7/2 vs. 0.6/2) and Adults 25-54 (+13% - 0.9/3 vs. 0.8/2).

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.
