ABC Thursday Prime (8-11pm - 6.1 million and 1.5/5 in AD18-49): ABC ran a strong second on Thursday in Live + Same Day Adults 18-49 (1.5/5) to a Big Bang-led CBS (1.7/6), beating original programming on NBC by 67% (0.9/3) and Fox by 88% (0.8/3). ABC is projected to once again lead the night in the Live + 3 Day ratings once that data is released on Tuesday.

The Catch (10-11pm - 4.6 million and 0.9/3 in AD18-49): At 10pm, ABC's The Catch beat NBC's Game of Silence by 29% in Adults 18-49 (0.9/3 vs. 0.7/2) and is poised to win the hour in L+3. Live + 3 Day Ratings for Last Thursday (4/14/16): Last Thursday, ABC's The Catch was the biggest gainer at 10pm on broadcast in both Total Viewers (+2.1 million viewers) and Adults 18-49 (+60%), posting much larger L+3 lifts than CBS' Rush Hour (+953k and +22%, respectively) and NBC's Game of Silence debut (+1.4 million and +38%, respectively). After 3 days of TV playback, The Catch shot up to a 1.6 Adult 18-49 rating, increasing its advantage over Rush Hour to 5-tenths of a rating point (1.1 rating) and over Game of Silence to 5-tenths (1.1 rating) versus a 1-tenth and 2-tenths lead, respectively, in L+SD.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on 2015-16 season averages 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 48% 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.
