Quick Take for Wednesday, January 18, 2006 (Based on Fast Affiliate Ratings)

From 8-9pm, ABC�s Repeat �Lost� Earns Second Place to �American Idol� Among Adults 18-49, Opposite All Original Competition on the Other Nets

Despite Fox�s Sizeable Lead Coming into the Time Period from �Idol,� ABC�s �Lost� Takes First Place During the 9 O�clock Hour, Ranking as the No. 1 Scripted Program on Wednesday in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49

ABC�s �Invasion� Ranks No.1 During the 10 O�clock Hour Among Men 18-34

Wednesday Night (8:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC delivered a strong second-place finish to �Idol�-fueled Fox on Wednesday in Adults 18-49 (4.7/11), outpacing third-place CBS by 21% (3.9/9) and fourth-place NBC by 52% (3.1/7).

�Lost� (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Against all-original competition from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ABC�s repeat telecast of �Lost� took second place to Fox�s Wednesday season premiere of �American Idol� among Adults 18-49 (2.4/6).

�Lost� (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Despite Fox�s enormous lead from �Idol� coming into the time period (Fox = 33.8 million & 14.0/34 at 8:30 p.m.), ABC�s �Lost� surged from its lead-in and gained audience throughout its telecast to win the 9 o�clock hour. ABC�s �Lost� defeated second-place Fox�s series debut of �Skating with Celebrities� by 3% in Total Viewers (19.3 million vs. 18.7 million) and by a more substantial 13% in Adults 18-49 (8.1/18 vs. 7.2/16).

Please Note: �American Idol� ran over into the 9:00 p.m. hour, so the current numbers for �Skating� are inflated and will adjust once the final national ratings are released this afternoon. Also of note, the first 15 minutes of �Skating with Celebrities� ran without a commercial break.

� �Lost� stood as the No. 1 scripted program on Wednesday in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

�Invasion� (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

During the 10 o�clock hour, ABC�s �Invasion� earned second-place in Men 18-49 (3.2/9) and Men 25-54 (3.8/10), while ranking No. 1 among Men 18-34 (3.3/10).
