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.

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.
