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

Against NBC�s Winter Olympics, ABC puts up its second-strongest non-sports Thursday this season in Adults 18-49 (4.2/11) and its top non-sports Adult 18-34 number (3.3/9) on the night in 3 years � since 2/20/03.

� Compared to the same night last February Sweep (2/17/05), ABC�s delivery increased by 5.7 million viewers (13.9 million vs. 8.2 million) and by 62% in Adults 18-49 (4.2/11 vs. 2.6/7).

�Dancing with the Stars� (8:00-9:30 p.m.)

ABC�s �Dancing with the Stars� won its 90-minute time period among Total Viewers (19.2 million), outpacing CBS (17.1 million) and NBC (16.9 million) by more than 2 million viewers. ABC bested NBC�s Winter Olympics coverage in each half-hour in viewers and young adults from 8:00-9:30 p.m., outdistancing third-place NBC by 2.3 million viewers (19.2 million vs. 16.9 million) and by 6% in Adults 18-49 (5.3/13 vs. 5.0/12), on average.

Based on Nielsen�s preliminary �fast affiliate ratings,� �DWTS� stands as the most-watched TV show on Thursday night.
