ABC's "American Music Awards" Rank #1 Non-Sports and Boost ABC to Season Highs on Sunday

Info on ABC's telecast of The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards, ahead of the regular press release.

Up against huge NFL-fueled competition on the evening, including a down-to-the-wire Sunday Night Football contest (Pittsburgh Steelers-Philadelphia Eagles) and an NFL primetime overrun-boosted CBS (Colts-Patriots), ABC's broadcast of The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards made it the dominant #1 non-sports net from 8:00-11:00 p.m. among Adults 18-49, towering over CBS by 55% and Fox by 70%. In addition, ABC's AMA telecast won its 3-hour time period over Sunday Night Football across all key Women (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54), Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11. In fact it was the #1 TV show of the night with Women 18-34, Women 18-49 and Teens 12-17.

· Despite the substantial competition during primetime, ABC marked Sunday night season highs with its coverage of the 2012 AMAs among Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. The show scored ABC's highest numbers in the time period since the Emmy Awards in September 8 weeks ago - since 9/23/12.

· An estimated 25.0 million viewers watched at least some portion of The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards on ABC during its 3-hour broadcast - unduplicated Viewers 2+ watching 6 minutes or more of the broadcast.

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 46% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2011. 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.
