ABC Thursday Prime (8-11pm - 6.0 million and 1.7/6 in AD18-49): Opposite the high-rated GOP debate from 9-11pm on Fox News, ABC ran in a close race on Thursday in Live + Same Day Adults 18-49 for the broadcast lead with Fox and its 2-hour American Idol (1.7/6 vs. 1.9/6).

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on 2015-16 season averages for originals (excluding the premiere).

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

New Series: Based on similar series.

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 Nielsen measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.
