Delivering solid week to week Adult 18-49 retention against “Idol” in the 8:00 p.m. hour, ABC’s “The Middle” (96% – 2.3/7 vs. 2.4/7) and “The Neighbors” (90% – 1.9/5 vs. 2.1/6) ran as the No. 1 scripted series in their respective half-hours.

 

  • Growing week to week in Teens 12-17, “The Middle” and “The Neighbors” each delivered their highest teen ratings since November 14, 2012.

 

“Modern Family” (9:00-9:30 p.m.)

At 9:00 p.m., ABC’s “Modern Family” held 91% of its week-earlier Adult 18-49 number (4.3/11 vs. 4.7/12) and beat out its nearest scripted competition in the half-hour by 59% (CBS’ “Criminal Minds” = 2.7/7).

In the 9:30 p.m. half-hour, ABC’s “Suburgatory” retained 92% of its Adult 18-49 (2.4/6 vs. 2.6/7) number week to week.

 

“Nashville” (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Building its Adult 18-49 audience for its 4th straight original telecast, ABC’s “Nashville” ran neck-and-neck with CBS’ “CSI” for the 10 o’clock hour’s lead in Adults 18-49 (pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share – 2.2/6 vs. 2.3/6).  The ABC freshman drama beat out “CSI” to win the hour among Adults 18-34 and key Women (W18-34/W18-49).

 

  • Gaining week to week in Adults 18-49 (+5%), “Nashville” delivered its highest rating since its debut telecast on October 10, 2012.
