ABC claimed the Top 2 TV shows of the night with Shark Tank and 20/20, respectively.

· ABC was up week to week and paced ahead of the year-ago night in both viewers and young adults.

Friday's #1 TV show, ABC's Shark Tank dominated the 8 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49, defeating CBS' Undercover Boss for the first time ever and by a definitive 21%.

· The ABC unscripted series surged to 7-week highs in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 - since 3/16/12.
