ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 6.0 million and 1.4/5 in AD18-49): ABC won the first Friday of the May Sweep in Adults 18-49, ranking #1 on the night for the 4th consecutive week (1.4/5) and finishing #1 in 5 of 6 half-hours of prime. ABC's Shark Tank was the night's No. 1 TV show in Adults 18-49, while 20/20 was the #2 TV show and once again ranked as Friday's #1 newsmagazine in key Adults (AD18-49/AD25-54).

· The Network was up over the same night last May Sweep by 1.6 million viewers (6.0 million vs. 4.4 million) and by 6% in Adults 18-49 (1.4/5 vs. 1.3/4).

Last Man Standing (8-8:30pm - 5.9 million and 1.1/5 in AD18-49): At 8pm, ABC's season finale of Last Man Standing was up 8% in Adults 18-49 to a 3-week high and won its half-hour for the 4th straight week.
