Quick Take for Wednesday, February 28, 2007 (Based on Fast Affiliate Ratings)

On All 4 Wednesdays of the 2007 February Sweep, ABC�s �Lost� Ranks as the Night�s No. 1 Scripted TV Program in the Key Adult 18-49 Sales Demographic

Continuing to Shoot Up from its Lead-in, ABC�s �Lost� Dominates from 10-11pm Across Each of the Key Adult Demos, Defeating CBS� Time Slot Veteran, �C.S.I.: NY�

�Lost� Marks its 2nd Straight Week of Growth in its New Time Slot in Adults 18-34

�Lost� Greatly Boosts ABC�s February Sweep Performance in Wednesday�s 10 O�clock Hour, Improving the Lead-in to Affiliate�s Late-Local News by Nearly 5 Million Viewers, by 74% in Adults 18-49 and by 62% in Adults 25-54

�Lost� (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Jumping from its lead-in by 8.2 million viewers (12.8 million vs. 4.6 million) and by 185% in Adults 18-49 (5.7/15 vs. 2.0/5), �Lost� moved ABC into the dominant No. 1 position at 10:00 p.m. across the key adult demographics. Although CBS enjoyed a decided lead-in advantage coming into the time period from an original �Criminal Minds,� �Lost� surged to defeat time period veteran �C.S.I.: NY� by +75% in Adults 18-34 (5.6/16 vs. 3.2/9), by +33% in Adults 18-49 (5.7/15 vs. 4.3/11) and by+15% in Adults 25-54 (6.0/15 vs. 5.2/13).

� On all 4 Wednesdays during the 2007 February Sweep, ABC�s �Lost� stood as the evening�s No. 1 scripted TV program in the key Adult 18-49 sales demographic. It was also the night�s top-rated scripted series on each Wednesday in February with Adults 25-54, Adults 18-34 and Teens 12-17.

� �Lost� grew its Adult 18-34 and Women 18-34 audience for the second straight week, gaining 4% (5.6/16 vs. 5.4/15) and 10% (6.4/16 vs. 5.8/15) week to week, respectively. On both counts, �Lost� generated its best numbers since its premiere telecast in the time period (on 2/7/07).

� �Lost� greatly improved Wednesday�s 10 o�clock hour for ABC during the 2007 February Sweep, offering substantial year-to-year increases as a lead-in to Network affiliates� late-local news. Versus its sweep performance in the hour last year, ABC�s February Sweep numbers climbed by 4.9 million viewers (13.3 million vs. 8.4 million), by 74% in Adults 18-49 (5.9/15 vs. 3.4/9) and by 62% in Adults 25-54 (6.3/15 vs. 3.9/9). On average �Lost� represents ABC�s most-watched program in the Wednesday 10 o�clock hour in 9 years, and its top-rated among Adults 18-49 in 10 years � since the 1997-98 and 1996-97 TV Seasons, respectively.
