Viewership of Full Episodes on ABC.com Reaches All-Time High in May

Season finales for hit series "LOST," "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives" and "Ugly Betty," among other programming, pushed viewership of ABC.com's Full Episode Player to a new all-time high in May 2008. ABC.com users watched a record 815 million minutes of full-length episodes during the month, a 53 percent increase over the previous month and an increase of nearly 110 percent over May 2007.

Data from Move Networks, ABC.com's Internet television services provider, also shows that viewers watched 37 million episodes in May, an increase of over 27 percent compared to the previous month. The data also demonstrates that viewers were highly engaged with the programming, watching multiple episodes per month.
