� In Total Viewers (7.0 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.7/7), ABC marked its strongest Tuesday in 6 weeks � since 7/29/08.

"Wipeout" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

ABC's 8 o'clock installment of "Wipeout" earned a strong second place in Adults 18-49, to the first hour of Fox's series debut of "Fringe" (2.8/8). ABC's "Wipeout" defeated the opening hour of NBC's 2-hour "America's Got Talent" by 22% in the key young adult sales demo (2.8/8 vs. 2.3/7).

� Despite the increased competition in the hour from the Fox debut and CW's second episode of "90210," "Wipeout" was up from its most recent original telecast two weeks ago (8/26/08) by 14% in Total Viewers (7.2 million vs. 6.3 million) and by 22% in Adults 18-49 (2.8/8 vs. 2.3/7).

"Primetime Medical Mysteries" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC News' "Primetime: Medical Mysteries" won the 10 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49 (2.2/6).

� Versus its most recent installment three weeks ago (8/19/08), "Primetime: Medical Mysteries" jumped by 2.5 million viewers (6.9 million vs. 4.4 million) and 47% in Adults 18-49 (2.2/6 vs. 1.5/4).

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 18% at the same point in 2006-07, up to 26% 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.
