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

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.

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.
