During the 8 o'clock hour, ABC's Shark Tank finished a strong second in Adults 18-49, while ranking #1 against its network rivals with Adults 18-34, key Men (M18-34/M18-49) and Kids 2-11.

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's 20/20 ran in a near-tie for #1 with CBS' Blue Bloods among Adults 18-49 (pacing within 1-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share) and won the hour with Women 18-49. In addition, 20/20 beat out its newsmagazine competition by wide margins, outdelivering NBC's Dateline by 1.5 million viewers, by 31% in Adults 25-54 and by 23% in Adults 18-49.
