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

ABC delivered a convincing victory on the final Wednesday of the 2007 November Sweep among Adults 18-49, leading its nearest competition on the evening by 29% (4.5/11 vs. 3.5/9 - CBS). Delivering a clean sweep on the evening across all key demographic categories, the Net also ranked No. 1 on the night with Adults 25-54 (5.0/12), Adults 18-34 (3.8/11), Teens 12-17 (2.7/9) and Kids 2-11 (5.1/19).

� For the 3rd consecutive November Sweep, ABC ranked No. 1 in the key Adult 18-49 sales demo (3.8/10), defeating second-place CBS for the month by 9% (3.5/9), third-place NBC by 15% (3.3/8) and fourth-place Fox by 19% (3.2/8). Making this year's November victory even more impressive was the fact that ABC did not air "Lost" on its schedule this fall, as it had in previous years.

� ABC claimed the Top 2 TV shows on Wednesday in viewers and young adults with "Shrek the Halls" and "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas," respectively. In fact "Shrek the Halls" (11.7/34) and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (11.6/33) delivered the Top 2 highest-rated Kids 2-11 primetime telecasts on the broadcast networks in over 7 years � since 8/23/00, excluding Super Bowls.

"Shrek the Halls" (8:00-8:30 p.m.)

ABC's debut airing of "Shrek the Halls" towered above its time period competition to rank as Wednesday's No. 1 TV show in Total Viewers (21.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (7.2/20). In fact among Adults 18-49, "Shrek the Halls" beat its combined CBS, NBC and Fox competition in the half-hour by 22% (7.2/20 vs. 5.9/16).

� "Shrek the Halls" drew ABC's largest audience in the time period in 1 year, its top non-sports Adult 18-49 number in nearly 2 years and its highest Kids 2-11 rating in close to 13 years � since 11/15/06, 1/12/05 and 1/25/95, respectively.

"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

The animated holiday classic "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" ranked as the No. 2 TV show of the evening in Viewers (18.7 million) and Adults 18-49 (6.8/17), behind only its lead-in. In its half-hour, "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" overshadowed its closest competitors, leading the slot by 9.3 million viewers (NBC's "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" = 9.4 million) and by 162% in Adults 18-49 (CW's "America's Next Top Model" = 2.6/7).

� "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" generated ABC's top viewer and young adult numbers in the time period in 1 year and its highest Kids 2-11 rating in more than 13-1/2 years � since 11/15/06 and 4/13/94, respectively.

� In its second year airing on ABC, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" jumped by 7.7 million viewers and by 74% in Adults 18-49 from the prior year (11.0 million & 3.9/11 on 12/12/06).

"Pushing Daisies" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Up against a season-high performance for CBS' "Criminal Minds," ABC's special 9 o'clock airing of "Pushing Daisies" took second place among Total Viewers (10.2 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.8/9), pacing well ahead of third-place Fox's "Kitchen Nightmares" (7.0 million & 3.3/8) and NBC's "Bionic Woman" (6.0 million & 2.2/5). "Daisies" ranked No. 1 in the hour among Adults 18-34 (3.4/9-tie), Teens 12-17 (2.3/7) and Kids 2-11 (3.2/12).

� Receiving strong additional sampling in its special time period, "Pushing Daisies" marked a best-since-debut Adult 18-49 rating (on 10/3/07), while hitting series highs with Adults 18-34, Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.

"Dirty Sexy Money" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Taking second to CBS' veteran "C.S.I.: NY," ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" topped its freshman drama competition during the 10 o'clock hour, NBC's "Life," by 13% in Total Viewers (7.1 million vs. 6.3 million) and by 18% in Adults 18-49 (2.6/7 vs. 2.2/6). The new ABC series ranked No. 1 in its time period among Women 18-34 (3.3/9).

� "Dirty Sexy Money" was up week to week by 11% in Viewers and by 30% in Adults 18-49 (6.4 million and 2.0/6 on 11/21/07).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year to year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating trends based on the Live + Same Day data stream may be somewhat distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has more than doubled from 10% at this time last year up to more than 21% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. Therefore, the only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
