WEEK No. 43:

ABC finished second during the week of July 14, 2008, among Adults 18-49 (1.5/5-tie).

Rankings: ABC owned 3 of the week's Top 15 TV shows in Adults 18-49, including the week's top non-sports program: "Wipeout" � No. 2, "Primetime: Family Secrets" � No. 7 and "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" � No. 11. ABC News aired TV's Top 2 newsmagazines of the week in Adults 18-49 for the second consecutive week with Tuesday's "Primetime: Family Secrets" and Wednesday's "Primetime: Crime," respectively.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating trends based on the Live + Same Day data stream may be somewhat distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped from 17% at the same point in 2006-07, up to 25% currently. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.

Monday

"The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

ABC's special rebroadcast of "The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?" won the 8 o'clock hour among Women 18-49 (2.2/7) and Women 25-54 (2.6/7).
