ABC Wins 5th Straight Friday with Its Top Rating Since November 2012 in Adults 18-49

ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 7.0 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49): ABC won its 2nd consecutive Friday of the May Sweep in Adults 18-49 (1.8/6), placing #1 on the night for the 5th week running and ranking #1 in all 6 half-hours of prime. ABC claimed the Top 3 TV shows of the night Adults 18-49, with Shark Tank (tying a season high), 20/20 and Shark Tank: Swimming with Sharks (tie), respectively.

· Setting a new season high on the night in Adults 18-49, ABC scored its top-rated Friday since November 2012 - since 11/9/12.

· For the 2nd week in a row, the Net built over the same Friday last May Sweep, gaining 2.5 million viewers (7.0 million vs. 4.5 million) and 38% in Adults 18-49 (1.8/6 vs. 1.3/5).

Shark Tank: Swimming with Sharks (8-9pm - 5.8 million and 1.5/6 in AD18-49): From 8-9pm, ABC's Shark Tank: Swimming with Sharks special won its hour in Adults 18-49 (1.5/6) and matched a season-high for the Net in the time period.

Shark Tank (9-10pm - 8.1 million and 2.2/8 in AD18-49): Shooting up over its lead-in by 47% at 9pm in Adults 18-49, ABC's Shark Tank (2.2/8) dominated its hour by 57% over runner-up NBC's Grimm (1.4/5). Shark Tank grew week to week by 1.0 million viewers and by 22% in Adults 18-49, drawing its 3rd largest audience ever and equaling a season high with young adults. The show also topped its year-ago telecast (5.7 million and 1.7/6 in AD18-49 on 5/3/13) by wide margins in Total Viewers (+42%) and Adults 18-49 (+29%).

· Up on average year to year in Total Viewers (+14%), Adults 18-49 (+10%) and Adults 18-34 (+13%), Shark Tank is on track for its strongest-ever season with its 3rd straight year of young adult gains.
