FOR 5TH CONSECUTIVE WEEK "NIGHTLINE" IMPROVES YEAR-OVER-YEAR IN TOTAL VIEWERS

"NIGHTLINE" GROWS WEEK-TO-WEEK ACROSS ALL KEY TARGET DEMOS

"NIGHTLINE" IS #1 SEASON TO DATE AMONG TOTAL VIEWERS AND ADULTS 25-54

During the week of July 18, 2011, ABC's "Nightline" took second among the late-night programs in Total Viewers (3.674 million), Adults 25-54 (1.436 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.085 million), according to Nielsen Media Research. The ABC program built on the previous week across each of the key target demos: Total Viewers (+2%), Adults 25-54 (+7%) and Adults 18-49 (+8%).

For the 5th consecutive week, "Nightline" was up on the year-ago week in Total Viewers (+10%) while both NBC's "The Tonight Show" (down -2%) and CBS' "The Late Show" (down -10%) saw decreases year to year. In addition, "Nightline" grew its overall audience year to year in 21 of the last 23 weeks.

Season to date, "Nightline" ranks first in late-night among Total Viewers and Adults 25-54.

In addition, "Nightline" is up by +5% in Total Viewers and by +3% in Adults 25-54 compared to the same point last year. Season to date, "Nightline" is drawing its largest overall audience in 8 years - since the 2002-03 season.
