ABC placed second on Tuesday in Adults 18-49 (2.3/7), turning in the Net's best non-sports performance on the night in the key young adult demo in over 3 months - since 6/1/10.

· Growing on the night for the 10th consecutive week, ABC built solidly over the year-ago Tuesday (9/15/09) in Total Viewers (+35% - 6.2 million vs. 4.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (+53% - 2.3/7 vs. 1.5/4). The Net has been up year to year on Tuesday evening on 16 of the last 17 weeks.

"Wipeout-TUES" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

In its final telecast in the time period this season, ABC's "Wipeout" won the 8:00-9:00 p.m. hour among Adults 18-49 (2.8/9) for the 4th straight telecast, dominating its second-place competition, NBC's original "Minute to Win It," (1.9/6) by 47% in the key young adult demo.

· "Wipeout" stood as Tuesday's No. 2 TV show among Adults 18-49, behind only NBC's Tuesday finale of "America's Got Talent" and topping the "Talent"-led season premiere of "Parenthood."

"Wipeout" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Opposite NBC's "America's Got Talent", the season finale of ABC's "Wipeout" scored in the Net's strongest non-sports delivery in the 9 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49 (2.6/7) since June - since 6/1/10.

"Final Witness" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's special "Final Witness" drew the Net's largest non-sports audience (4.8 million) at 10:00 p.m. in over 3 months - since 6/1/10. "Final Witness" outperformed CBS' "Fashion's Night Out 2010" by 60% in Total Viewers (4.8 million vs. 3.0 million) and by 133% in Adults 18-49 (1.4/4 vs. 0.6/2).

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 38% currently, from 32% 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.
