Building on its lead-in by double digits at 10:00 p.m., ABC's special "20/20" with Diane Sawyer exploring the mystery of "The Sound of Music" ranked No. 1 in its hour with Adults 18-49 (1.4/5) and Adults 25-54 (2.0/6), tying CBS' original "CSI: Cyber" on both measures.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate measure to gauge the size of the TV audience

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2014-15 season for premiere telecast or an average for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.
