THE STORY OF FROZEN Scores 8-Month High for ABC

"The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic" (8:00-9:00 p.m. - 4.7 million and 1.1/4):
From 8:00-9:00 p.m., "The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic," made ABC the 2nd-most-watched TV network in THE HOUR and boosted its time slot by 18% in Total Viewers over the Net's average in THE HOUR this summer with all programming (4.7 million vs. 4.0 million).

In addition, the special scored an 8-month high for ABC in the time slot with Kids 2-11 (1.3/5) - since 12/31/13.

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 49% currently, from 48% at the same point in 2013.

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.
