Wednesday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)
Despite airing repeat comedies during the first 3 half-hours of the evening, ABC beat out NBC's all-original schedule on Wednesday by strong double-digit percentage in both Total Viewers (+17% - 5.6 million vs. 4.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (+50% - 1.8/5 vs. 1.2/4).
"The Middle" (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

"Suburgatory" (8:30-9:00 p.m.)
Building on its lead-in at 8:30 p.m. among young adults (+8%), ABC's repeat "Suburgatory" nearly doubled NBC's original "Best Friends Forever" in the half hour in Total Viewers (+67% - 4.5 million vs. 2.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (+75% - 1.4/4 vs. 0.8/2).
* The ABC freshman comedy was up sharply over its last repeat airing (3.6 million and 1.2/4 on 4/4/12) in Total Viewers (+25%) and Adults 18-49 (+17%).
"Modern Family" (9:00-9:30 p.m.)
At 9:00 p.m., ABC's encore "Modern Family" shot up from its lead-in (+57%) to finish as Wednesday's No. 1 scripted TV show in Adults 18-49 (2.2/6).
* ABC's "Modern Family" improved over its year-ago replay by 10% in Adults 18-49. In addition, the ABC comedy topped its most recent encore (on 4/4/12) by 18% in viewers (5.8 million vs. 4.9 million) and by 22% in young adults (2.2/6 vs. 1.8/5).

Posting strong retention of its "Modern Family" lead-in during the 9:30 p.m. half-hour with Adults 18-34 (100% - 1.6/5 vs. 1.6/5) and Adults 18-49 (91% - 2.0/5 vs. 2.2/6), ABC's "Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23" ranked No. 2 to the conclusion of "American Idol" for the 2nd consecutive week on both young adult measures.
"Revenge" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)
During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Revenge" finished No. 1 for the 2nd week in a row among Total Viewers, Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54. The ABC drama once again beat out NBC's "Law & Order: SVU" with Total Viewers (+6% - 6.8 million vs. 6.4 million), Adults 18-49 (+25% - 2.0/6 vs. 1.6/4) and Adults 25-54 (+24% - 2.6/6 vs. 2.1/5).
A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 44% currently, from 41% at the same point in 2011. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
