NBC's UNDATEABLE Ties for Time Slot Win

"Undateable" (1.4/4 in 18-49, 5.1 million viewers overall from 9-9:30 p.m. ET) retained 93% of last week's 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 98% of last week's 5.176 million in total viewers, despite this week's encore "Voice" lead-in. "Undateable" retained a best-yet 74% of its 18-49 lead-in from "The Voice" (an encore recap last night), up from last week's 54%.

In the time period, "Undateable" tied for #1 in the slot among the Big 4 in 18-49 against all original competition and ranked #1 outright among those nets in adults 25-54, women 25-54 and women 18-49.

"Undateable" improved the time period by +27% in 18-49 and +34% in total viewers versus NBC's season average in the slot prior to "Undateable," excluding "The Voice" (1.1 in 18-49, 3.774 million viewers overall, L+SD). Excluding "The Voice," "Undateable" has now generated NBC's three highest 18-49 ratings in the time period since Nov. 18.

Last night's "Undateable" is up +56% versus the show's 0.9 average last summer in 18-49 (L+SD, originals only). In total viewers, the increase versus last season's average is +82% (5.054 million vs. 2.779 million).

"One Big Happy" (1.2/3 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall from 9:30-10 p.m. ET) retained 100% of last week's 1.2 in 18-49 and was up +5% week to week in total viewers (3.983 million vs. 3.794 million).

Versus all-original time-slot competition on the Big 4, "One Big Happy" ranked #1 in women 18-49 and women 18-34 and tied for #1 in adults 25-54 and women 25-54.

"One Big Happy" retained a best-yet 86% of its 18-49 lead-in from "Undateable," up from last week's 80%.

"One Big Happy" improved the slot by +20% in 18-49 versus NBC's season average in the time period prior to "One Big Happy," excluding "The Voice" (1.0, L+SD). Excluding "The Voice," "One Big Happy" has now generated NBC's three highest 18-49 ratings in the time period since Nov. 18.

An encore recap edition of "The Voice" (1.9/7 in 18-49, 8.4 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) is running within 0.2 of a rating point of the time-period lead among the Big 4 in adults 18-49 and wins the time period among the Big 4 in adults 18-34 and women 18-34 versus all-original competition on the Big 4 nets.

UPSCALE: Last week's telecasts of "The Voice," "Undateable" and "One Big Happy" were the #2, 3 and 4 most upscale shows of the night on the Big 4 in terms of their concentrations of adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes, with indexes of 117, 116 and 115 respectively (100 indicates an average concentration of those homes, L+SD).

A rebroadcast of "Chicago Fire" (0.9/3 in 18-49, 3.9 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) runs within 0.1 of the slot lead among ABC, CBS and NBC versus originals on the other nets. The "Chicago Fire" encore tied for #1 versus that original competition in women 18-34.

"Chicago Fire" delivered its most-watched rebroadcast since April 22, 2014 (4.2 million) and equaled its top 18-49 rating for an encore since March 25, 2014 (1.0).
