ABC Wins 6th Straight Friday with "Shark Tank" and "20/20" as the Top 2 Shows in Adults 18-49

ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 5.9 million and 1.5/5 in AD18-49): Despite leading off the night with a repeat Shark Tank at 8pm, ABC took its 3rd straight Friday of the May Sweep in Adults 18-49, ranking #1 on the night for the 6th week running and beating CBS' night of season finales by 25% (1.5/5 vs. 1.2/4).

· The Net claimed the Top 2 TV shows of the evening in Adults 18-49, with Shark Tank and 20/20, respectively. In fact this season, Shark Tank has finished as Friday's #1 TV series on 25 of its 27 original telecasts in Adults 18-49.

· For the 3rd week in a row, ABC was up over the same Friday last May Sweep in both Total Viewers (+16% - 5.9 million vs. 5.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (+7% - 1.5/5 vs. 1.4/5).

Shark Tank - R (8-9pm - 4.4 million and 1.0/4 in AD18-49): From 8-9pm, ABC's repeat Shark Tank took second place in Adults 18-49.

Shark Tank (9-10pm - 7.2 million and 1.9/6 in AD18-49): Spiking over its lead-in by 90% at 9pm in Adults 18-49, ABC's Shark Tank (2.2/8) led its hour by 46% over runner-up CBS' Hawaii Five-0 finale and NBC's Grimm (1.3/4 - tied). The show once again topped its year-ago telecast (6.2 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49 on 5/10/13) in Total Viewers (+16%) and Adults 18-49 (+6%).

· Delivering strong year-to-year growth in Total Viewers (+16%), Adults 18-49 (+10%) and Adults 18-34 (+20%), Shark Tank is generating its strongest-ever season with its 3rd straight year of young adult gains. 20/20 (10-11pm - 6.2 million and 1.5/5 in AD18-49): At 10pm, ABC's 20/20 won its hour by 7% over CBS' Blue Bloods finale in Adults 18-49 (1.5/5 vs. 1.4/4), marking its 10th consecutive week as the #1 regular program in its time period. In addition, the ABC newsmagazine nearly doubled NBC's Hannibal in the hour with young adults (+88% - 0.8/3). 20/20 continued its run as the #1 newsmagazine of the night, outdelivering NBC's Dateline (8-9pm) in Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49.

· Up season to date in Total Viewers (+23%) and Adults 25-54 (+5%), 20/20 is producing its most-watched season overall in 5 years - since the 2008-09 season.
