How to Live With Your parents for the Rest of Your Life Pilot

via press release:

At 9pm, ABC’s repeat Modern Family took second to Idol and outdelivered its scripted competition in the half-hour on CBS by 11% (Criminal Minds) and on NBC by 100% (L&O: SVU). Up over its most recent repeat in viewers (+19%) and young adults (+11%), Modern Family generated its most-watched replay since the beginning of January – since 1/2/13.


Retaining 100% of its Modern Family Adult 18-49 lead-in, ABC’s How to Live with Your Parents took second in the 9:30pm half-hour to Idol. And although its encore Modern Family lead-in was off 47% from last week’s original telecast, How to Live with Your Parents retained 80% of its week-ago Adult 18-49 delivery.


During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s Nashville was up 50% over its last repeat in Adults 18-49, equaling its best-ever repeat performance.

  • Fred

    Very convincing indeed.

  • Samunto

    But honestly, this is actually good. Still better than what the previous time slot occupants did when they aired after a rpt of MF.

  • Jonathan

    No mention of Suburgatory… ouch!

  • Dan

    Any other show would have gone below a 2.0 after a Modern Family repeat. Very impressive for HTLWYP.

  • Funeral Dinner

    The show is lucky total viewers aren’t important, because just over 6 million is pretty poor.

  • Ellis

    How To Live is good and getting better. Hope it continues.
