ABC Claims the Week's 2 Biggest DVR Gainers with MODERN FAMILY

Based on Nielsen's DVR playback data for the week, ABC claimed the 2 biggest gainers via DVR playback among Adults 18-49, as a special episode of MODERN FAMILY gained +2.5 rating points and the regular telecast added on +2.0 rating points. Soaring to a 7.4 rating among young adults in the final Live + 7 Day ratings, the Modern Family special jumped up to rank as the #2 TV program of the week, pacing within just 4-tenths of a rating point of NBC's Sunday Night Football (7.4 vs. 7.8). In addition, the regular airing of Modern Family moved out of a tie with The Voice in the Live + Same Day statistics to lead the NBC unscripted series by a full rating point in the final Live + 7 Day numbers (6.8 vs. 5.8).

The series debut of ABC's Nashville shot up 50% in Adults 18-49 over its Live + Same Day rating to deliver a 4.2 rating in its Live + 7 Day finals, while picking up 3.53 million more viewers to average 12.46 million Total Viewers for its debut telecast.
