From 8:30-9 p.m. ET, an encore "Whitney" (0.9/3 in 18-49, 2.6 million viewers overall) is currently up a tenth of a point versus last week's 18-49 rating and up 4 percent in total viewers (2.555 million vs. 2.454 million), pending updates. This week's 8:30 "Whitney" rebroadcast retained 82 percent of its 18-49 lead-in from the 8 p.m. original, up from a 67 percent retention in the time period last week (0.8 vs. 1.2)..

* At 9 p.m. ET, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (1.5/4 in adults 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall) finished within a tenth of a rating point of its prior original telecast of three weeks ago (1.6 on February 27) and is up slightly in total viewers (5.449 million vs. 5.438 million).
