� ABC attracted its third-largest Thursday audience (16.7 million) this season and second-highest Adult 18-49 number (6.5/16).

� ABC�s Thursday delivery was up by 2.2 million viewers and by 48% in Adults 18-49 from the same night last year (14.5 million and 4.4/11 on 2/9/06).

�Ugly Betty� (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Opposite the season premiere of CBS� �Survivor: Fiji,� ABC�s freshman �Ugly Betty� delivered a solid second place in Total Viewers (14.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (4.7/12), and ranked No. 1 ahead of �Survivor� in Adults 18-34 (4.8/14) and Women 18-34 (7.2/19). For the second week in a row, �Betty� was surpassed by only ABC�s �Grey�s Anatomy� to rank as the No. 2 TV program on Thursday with Women 18-34.
