"Wife Swap" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

"Wife Swap" gave ABC a solid start from 8:00-9:00 p.m., taking second place in the hour among Women 18-34 (3.8/11) and Women 18-49 (4.4/11).

* "Wife Swap" delivered a season high in the 8 o'clock hour among Total Viewers (7.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.2/9).

In its season premiere, ABC's "What About Brian" retained an impressive 97% of its Adult 18-49 lead-in from "The Bachelor" (3.0/8 vs. 3.1/7) and built on its lead with Adults 18-34 (3.0/8 vs. 2.9/8).
