[via press release from ABC]

ABC is Thursday's #1 Non-Sports Net, Increasing its Lead over NBC to 78% and More than Doubling Fox's Premiere Line-Up

Thursday (10/1/15) - ABC Total Viewer and Adult 18-49 Projections, including Multiplatform + 35 Days

Grey's Anatomy: L3 = 12.8 million/3.4 rating, L7 = 13.8 million/3.6 rating and MP+35 = 4.6 rating

HTGAWM: L3 = 12.0 million/3.7 rating, L7 = 12.8 million/3.9 rating and MP+35 = 4.0 rating

Live + Same Day Results:

ABC Thursday Prime (8-11pm - 8.4 million and 2.5/8 in AD18-49): Opposite an even stronger Thursday Night Football game on CBS (Baltimore-Pittsburgh), ABC (8.4 million and 2.5/8) was Thursday's definitive #1 non-sports net for the 2nd week in a row, beating runner-up NBC with The Blacklist opener (5.7 million and 1.4/5) by 47% in Total Viewers and by 79% in Adults 18-49 (up from a 71% advantage last week), while more than doubling Fox's season premiere line-up of Bones and Sleepy Hollow (4.8 million and 1.2/4) in Adults 18-49 (+108%). ABC once again won Thursday over CBS' NFL coverage across key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54) and will significantly narrow the Adult 18-49 gap with CBS on the night in Live + 7 Day ratings. With each of its TGIT dramas holding strong week to week against heightened competition, the Net retained 86% of its big week-ago season premiere rating on the night in Adults 18-49 (2.5/8 vs. 2.9/10).

· For the 2nd week running, ABC's TGIT lineup delivered the Top 3 entertainment shows of the night in Adults 18-49 with Grey's Anatomy (2.3/8), Scandal (2.8/9) and How to Get Away with Murder (2.3/7). Please Note: All three ABC Thursday dramas registered Live +3 Day lifts between 1.3-1.5 rating points last week.

· Scandal is once again tracking as the week's 2nd-highest-rated drama in Adults 18-49, closing the gap week to week with Fox's Empire (-2.7 vs. -3.4). In addition at 9pm, Scandal beat the opener of The Blacklist by an even larger margin of 56% this year in Adults18-49 (2.8/9 vs. 1.8/5), up from a 33% advantage during their first head-to-head matchup in February.

At 8:00 p.m., ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" continued to dominate NBC's "Heroes Reborn" in Total Viewers (+70% - 8.5 million vs. 5.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (+44% - 2.3/8 vs. 1.6/5), while also crushing Fox's "Bones" premiere in the hour (6.1 million and 1.3/5) in Total Viewers (+39%) and Adults 18-49 (+77%).

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 48% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2014-15 season for premiere telecast or an average for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.
