A Repeat "America's Funniest Home Videos" Wins Sunday at 7pm in Adults 18-34 and 18-49, Putting ABC in the Top Spot in Both Counts for the 5th Week Running

WEEK No. 44:

Rankings: ABC owned 4 of the week's Top 15 TV shows in Adults 18-49, including the week's No. 1 program with "Wipeout": "Wipeout" � No. 1 and "Primetime: Family Secrets" � No. 10, with "Primetime: Crime" and "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" � tied at No. 12. In addition to being the top TV show of the week in the key adult sales demo, "Wipeout" was also the week's No. 1 program among Adults 18-34, Women 18-49, Men 18-49 and Men 25-54. ABC News aired TV's Top 2 newsmagazines of the week in Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 with Tuesday's "Primetime: Family Secrets" and Wednesday's "Primetime: Crime," respectively. In fact, it is the 3rd week in a row that ABC News has aired the Top 2 newsmagazines of the week in Adults 18-49.

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 18% at the same point in 2006-07, up to 26% 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.
