"Primetime: The Outsiders" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Against the final hour of NBC's 2-hour "America's Got Talent" in the 10 o'clock hour, the season premiere of ABC News' "Primetime: The Outsiders" took a strong second place across the key adult demos: AD18-34 (2.0/6), AD18-49 (2.5/7) and AD25-54 (2.8/7). "Primetime: The Outsiders" soundly defeated its news programming competition on the night, outdelivering CBS' "48 Hours Mystery" (9:00-10:00 p.m.) by 56% in Adults 18-49 (2.5/7 vs. 1.6/4) and by 22% in Adults 25-54 (2.8/7 vs. 2.3/6).

On its third season premiere, "Primetime: The Outsiders" logged its best-ever opening numbers in Adults 18-34 (2.0/6) and Men 18-49 (2.0/6).

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 jumped from 17% at the same point in 2006-07, up to 25% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. 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.
