"I Survived a Japanese Game Show" (9:00-10:01 p.m.)

Moving to a new night (shifting from Tuesdays last summer) opposite established unscripted competition during the 9 o'clock hour from Fox's second half of its 2-hour "So You Think You Can Dance," ABC's "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" delivered a second-place finish in Adults 18-49 (2.1/6). It was the evening's No. 2 TV show, behind only "Wipeout," with Men 18-49 (2.0/6) and Men 25-54 (2.3/6).

� "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" improved the hour for ABC over the year-ago night (6/18/08) by 1.1 million viewers (5.4 million vs. 4.3 million) and by 24% in Adults 18-49 (2.1/6 vs. 1.7/5).

In fact on both Nielsen measures it was the second-best-ever audience retention for any telecast of "Japanese Game Show" out of "Wipeout."

Sunday

"ABC Premiere Event � Impact - Part 1" (9:00 � 11:00 p.m.)

The "ABC Premiere Event � Impact - Part 1" drew the Net's largest summer audience (4.7 million) with non-sports programming in the 2-hour time period in nearly 1 year - since 7/6/08. Part 1 of the ABC miniseries saw its audience build throughout the course of its telecast, growing by 21% (4.2 million to 5.1 million) from its first half-hour to its final half-hour.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 31% currently, from 25% at the same point in 2008. 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.
