ABC's "Home Edition" Marks its Highest-Rated Telecast in Nearly 2 Months

Generating the Series' Strongest Results Since January, ABC's 2-Hour 9-11pm "Brothers & Sisters" Tops NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" by 2.2 Million Viewers

Sunday Night (7:00-11:00 p.m.)

Opposite CBS' Masters Golf Tournament-boosted lineup with an overrun into the opening hour of prime, ABC held the No. 2 position on Sunday night among Total Viewers (8.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.2/7-tie).

� Marking its 2nd straight week of Sunday gains, ABC turned in its best numbers on the night in 4 weeks � since 3/14/10.

"America's Funniest Home Videos" (7:00-8:00 p.m.)

Up against a Masters-led CBS in the 7 o'clock hour, ABC's "America's Funniest Home Videos" earned a solid second place in Total Viewers (6.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.5/5), defeating NBC's "Dateline" (3.7 million and 0.7/3) by 2.7 million viewers and by 114% in Adults 18-49.

Building on its lead-in and gaining audience throughout its 2-hour broadcast, ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" finished No. 2 to CBS in the 9:00-11:00 p.m. time period, outdrawing NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" by 2.2 million viewers in head-to-head competition (8.8 million vs. 6.6 million).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 36% currently, from 30% at the same point in 2009. 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.
