For the Second Week in a Row, ABC�s Invasion is Up in Viewers and Young Adults

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

�Lost� (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Starting out opposite stiff competition from Fox -- with the �American Idol� results show (9:00-9:30 p.m.) coming out of a much stronger than normal lead-in from a special �House� (8:00-9:00 p.m.) -- ABC�s �Lost� jumped from its lead and gained audience throughout its telecast to rank a strong No. 1 at 9:30pm in viewers and young adults. During the 9 o�clock hour, �Lost� (15.0 million & 6.2/15) topped its CBS drama competition by wide margins in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 (�Criminal Minds� � 12.1 million & 3.5/8).

� Delivering strong tune-in for ABC at 9:00 p.m. against �Idol,� �Lost� jumped from its �Alias� lead-in by 9.5 million viewers and by 244% in Adults 18-49. From its first half-hour to its second half-hour, the sophomore drama gained 2.1 million viewers (14.0 million to 16.1 million) and 18% in Adults 18-49 (5.7/14 to 6.7/16). As a result from 9:30-10:00 p.m., �Lost� ranked a strong No. 1, defeating Fox�s �Idol�-fueled �Unanimous� by 2.3 million viewers (16.1 million vs. 13.8 million) and by 12% in Adults 18-49 (6.7/16 vs. 6.0/14).

� �Lost� ranked as TV�s No. 1 scripted program on Wednesday among Adults 18-49 (tie). The sophomore ABC drama has been the top-rated scripted program on Wednesday in all 20 of its original telecasts this season.

�Invasion� (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

For the second week in a row, ABC�s �Invasion� was up from the previous week in Total Viewers (7.7 million vs. 7.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.0/8 vs. 2.8/7).
