ABC Grows by 1.7 Million Viewers and 10% in Adults 18-49 from the Same Night Last Year, its Most-Watched Season Opening Thursday in 4 Years

ABC's Special "Dancing with the Stars: Dance-Off Results Show" Earns Second-Place at 9pm, Topping the Season Premiere of NBC's "The Apprentice"

Thursday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's Thursday night delivery was up by 1.7 million viewers (8.3 million vs. 6.6 million) and by 10% among Adults 18-49 (2.2/6 vs. 2.0/5) over its performance on the same night a year ago (9/23/04).
