Anchored by Chris Cuomo, "20/20" featured a look at nasty neighbors, including a birthday party that led to murder, a children's spat that turned into all-out warfare between their parents and celebrity neighbor showdowns. The program also included a preview of "Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time with Barbara Walters."

· ABC's "20/20" shot up to 6-month highs in viewers and key Adults (AD18-49/AD25-54) - since 3/30/12.
