ABC�s Debut Airing of �Day Break� Defeats NBC�s Season Premiere of �Medium�

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

ABC won its 7th consecutive Wednesday among Adults 18-49 (4.8/12), also leading the evening for the second week in a row among Total Viewers (16.1 million).

� ABC�s third season finale of �Dancing with the Stars� stood as the No. 1 TV program on Wednesday across the board, including Total Viewers (27.2 million), Adults 25-54 (8.9/21), Adults 18-49 (7.0/18), Adults 18-34 (4.7/14), Teens 12-17 (3.0/10) and Kids 2-11 (3.9/13).

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

With an average audience of 27.2 million viewers and a 7.0 rating, 18 share among Adults 18-49, ABC�s �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show� took first place during Wednesday's 8 o'clock hour for the 10th week in a row. From 8:00-9:00 p.m., the ABC dance finale overshadowed second-place CBS' �Jericho� by 17.8 million viewers (27.2 million vs. 9.4 million) and by 133% in Adults 18-49 (7.0/18 vs. 3.0/8). In fact �DWTS� outdrew the combined audiences of CBS, NBC and Fox in the hour by 3.6 million viewers (27.2 million vs. 23.6 million). NFL champion Emmitt Smith won the ABC dance competition.

� ABC�s �Dancing� attracted the series� largest-ever audience, matching its second season finale on 2/26/06. Please Note: Since the program ran past the 8 o�clock hour, its viewer count will likely increase slightly once the Nielsen releases the final national ratings this afternoon.

� With Tuesday�s penultimate episode (26.8 million) and Wednesday�s season finale of �DWTS� (27.2 million), ABC now lays claim to the Top 2 most-watched telecasts on TV this season.

� ABC�s �Dancing� achieved season highs in the time period in viewers and young adults, delivering the Net�s largest audience in the time period with series programming since May 2000 and its top Adult 18-49 number in nearly 1-1/2 years � since 5/3/00 and 5/25/05, respectively.

�Day Break� (9:00-11:00 p.m.)

The debut telecast of ABC�s �Day Break� took second place in its 2-hour time period, beating out NBC�s season premiere of �Medium� in Total Viewers (10.5 million vs. 9.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.7/10 vs. 3.5/9).

� After some of the audience from its enormous �DWTS� lead-in filtered out during the first half-hour, �Day Break� delivered a solid 9 share among Adults 18-49 in each half-hour from 9:30-11:00 p.m.
