[via press release from ABC]

ABC Marks is First November Sweep Win in 7 Years in Adults 18-49

ABC is Up 11% in Viewers and 5% in Adults 18-49 in the �Non-Sports� Averages, the Only Network to Grow During November on Both Counts

ABC Claims the Top 2 TV Series of November in Adults 18-49, And Airs the Top 2 Most-Watched Telecasts of the Sweep and Season

November 2006 (28 Nights � Complete Sweep):

ABC ranked No. 1 during the 2006 November Sweep in the key Adult 18-49 sales demo, besting the second-place networks by +8% (4.1/11 vs. 3.8/10 � CBS and NBC tied). For the 3rd consecutive November Sweep, ABC ranked as the No. 1 network among Adults 18-34 (3.3/10). The Net�s competitive performance becomes even more noteworthy, considering that it did not have �Monday Night Football� this year in the averages.

� After tying CBS for No. 1 last November in Adult 18-49 rating, ABC marked its first outright November Sweep victory in the key young adults sales demographic in 7 years � since November 1999.

� Excluding sports from the averages this year and last to adjust for the loss of �MNF,� ABC saw its November Sweep numbers grow by 11% in Total Viewers (12.1 million vs. 10.9 million) and by 5% in Adults 18-49 (4.3/11 vs. 4.1/11). In fact, ABC was the only network to grow in the �non-sports� averages in either Nielsen measure.

Disney-owned ABC claimed the Top 4 broadcast series of the sweep in Kids 2-11, including �Home Edition,� �DWTS,� �DWTS the Results Show� and �America�s Funniest Home Videos.�

� Individual Telecast Rankings: With the penultimate episode of �Dancing with the Stars� and the series� third season finale (on 11/14 &11/15/06), ABC broadcast the Top 2 most-watched TV telecasts on any network during the November Sweep, and also this season. During the sweep, the Net placed 8 of the Top 10 most-watched TV telecasts, with episodes of �DWTS the Results� �DWTS,� �Desperate Housewives� and �Grey�s Anatomy.� ABC delivered 8 of the Top 10 individual program telecasts during November among Adults 18-49, between episodes of �Desperate Housewives� and �Grey�s Anatomy.� Each of the Top 6 telecasts during November in Adults 18-34 were episodes of either ABC�s �Grey�s� or �Housewives.�
