ABC delivered the No. 1 network position on Thursday with Adults 18-34 (3.4/10) and Women 18-34 (4.8/14).

� Versus the same night last year when its lineup was comprised of all-original programming, ABC was up by 2.5 million viewers and by 48% in Adults 18-49 (7.2 million & 2.5/7 on 4/13/06).

"Ugly Betty" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Opposite originals of CBS' "Survivor: Fiji" and Fox's "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?," ABC's "Ugly Betty" clip show outdrew NBC's original comedies ("My Name is Earl"/"The Office") by 11% in Total Viewers from 8:00-9:00 p.m. (8.1 million vs. 7.3 million).

� Despite going up against first-run competition on the other nets, the "Betty" season recap show gained audience throughout its telecast, growing by 9% in Viewers (7.8 million to 8.5 million) and 18% among Adults 18-49 (2.2/7 to 2.6/7) from its first half-hour to its second half-hour.

Additionally, "Notes" delivered the best Women 18-34 number (4.8/13) for any comedy premiere since ABC's "Ugly Betty" (on 9/28/06), representing the second-highest-rated on television this season.

� Versus the same night last year (4/14/06), the back-to-back episodes of "Notes from the Underbelly" improved the 10 o'clock time period for ABC among Total Viewers (8.5 million vs. 8.2 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.7/10 vs. 2.4/7).
