"48 HOURS: LIVE TO TELL: MY NAME IS VICTORIA" IS SATURDAY'S #1 PROGRAM AND POSTS THE BROADCAST'S LARGEST AUDIENCE OF THE SEASON AND BEST ADULTS 25-54 DRAW SINCE FEBRUARY 2015

48 HOURS: LIVE TO TELL: "My Name is Victoria" was Saturday's #1 program in viewers and delivered the broadcast's largest audience of the season and its best adults 25-54 delivery since February 2015, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Jan. 23.

48 HOURS (10:00-11:00 PM) delivered 5.62 million viewers and a 1.5/04 in adults 25-54, the demographic that matters most to those who advertise in news. Compared to the same night last year, 48 HOURS was up +25% in adults 25-54 and +8% in viewers.

48 HOURS: LIVE TO TELL: "My Name is Victoria" was the second of a Saturday night double feature. The first, "A Vision of Murder," presented at 9:00 PM, was #1 in viewers and the #2 program overall for the night. "A Vision of Murder" (R) delivered 4.98 million viewers and a 1.1/03 in adults 25-54.

"My Name is Victoria" focused on the extraordinary story a woman who survived being kidnapped, tortured and left for dead and the 18-year-hunt that led to the arrest of an "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" actor. Erin Moriarty anchored the broadcast about the inspiring story of one woman's will to live through a brutal attack, how that night changed her life forever.

Victoria, whose name was changed for the broadcast, was just 19 years old in December 1990 when two men came out of nowhere as she approached her apartment and attacked her. With sheer will and quick thinking, she survived a series of terrible events, including multiple sexual assaults. It would take nearly two decades before police got the break they needed when DNA taken from Victoria's body the night of the attack matched Joseph Son, an actor in "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." Son's friend Santiago Gaitan was later arrested. Before trial, Deputy District Attorney Eric Scarbrough discovered the statute of limitations for rape and kidnapping had expired. Then Scarbrough found another way to legally prosecute the case.
