Sunday Night's No. 1 Show Drew Nearly 15 Million Viewers, Beating CBS, NBC And FOX Combined by Nearly 5 Million Viewers in its Time Slot

This SATURDAY, JULY 16, from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET, ABC News will air an encore presentation of "A Special Edition of Primetime with Diane Sawyer -- Jaycee Dugard: In Her Own Words," which drew nearly 15 million viewers when it first aired on Sunday, July 10. Saturday's two-hour encore will include updates with viewer reaction to Jaycee Dugard's amazing and inspiring story, as well as new material from Sawyer's exclusive interview.

Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped at age 11 on her way to school by Phillip and Nancy Garrido and held captive for the next 18 years, during which time she was repeatedly abused and gave birth to two daughters. Phillip and Nancy Garrido have both recently been sentenced to life in prison. Jaycee first captivated the world's attention 20 years ago when she disappeared as a child, and then again as a 29-year-old woman with two daughters when they were all remarkably discovered and freed. Her story resonated with families around the world who could not imagine the horrors that she faced and the life lost over those years.

Jaycee tells the extraordinary and heartbreaking story of her captivity, her reunion with her family, and her much anticipated book, A Stolen Life: A Memoir (Simon & Schuster). In addition to Sawyer's exclusive interview, the two-hour special features Chris Cuomo's investigation into why law enforcement failed to find Jaycee despite 60 visits to Garrido's home.

Gabrielle Giffords, in Tucson to the combative and controversial Donald Rumsfeld speaking exclusively to Sawyer in his first interview since leaving the Bush Administration, and a rare one-on-one with Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg. In addition Sawyer conducted the first joint interview with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and General David Petraeus in Afghanistan, the first interviews with incoming Speaker of the House John Boehner and outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the 2010 midterm elections, the first interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the U.S. took military action in Libya, and British Prime Minister David Cameron's first U.S. television interview following his election.
