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

Just one week prior to the launch of its complete Wednesday night schedule (�DWTS the Results�/�Lost�/�The Nine�), ABC was extremely competitive among Adults 18-49 and ranked No. 1 on the evening with Women 18-49 (5.4/14), Women 18-34 (4.2/12) and Kids 2-11 (1.5/7).

� ABC continued to build momentum on the evening as it approaches the launches of �Lost� and �The Nine� next Wednesday, growing from the previous week by 6% in viewers (12.8 million vs. 12.1 million) and by 11% in AD18-49 (4.2/11 vs. 3.8/11). It was ABC's strongest Wednesday since the end of last season, the night of �Lost's� second season finale on 5/24/06.

Editors Please Note: ABC will premiere its complete Wednesday night schedule on 10/4/06, featuring �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,� into the third season premiere of �Lost,� followed by the series debut of �The Nine.�

Up from the prior week in viewers (+4% - 15.6 million vs. 15.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (+8% - 4.0/12 vs. 3.7/11), Dancing with the Stars the Results� won Wednesday's 8 o'clock hour for the third straight week.

�Lost: A Tale of Survival� (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

During the 9 o'clock hour, a clip show recapping the first two seasons of �Lost� delivered a competitive second-place finish, and in the process brought viewers up to speed on the series and warmed up the time period for next week's third season premiere. �Lost: A Tale of Survival� took second place in its time period in Total Viewers (9.5 million), Adults 25-54 (4.1/10), Adults 18-49 (3.4/9-tie) and Adults 18-34 (2.7/8-tie).
