� Series Rankings: In Adults 18-49, ABC aired the Top 2 scripted series during the 2009 November Sweep, with "Grey's Anatomy" � No. 1 and "Desperate Housewives" � No. 2. ABC placed 4 of TV's Top 10 most-watched series overall in November: "Dancing with the Stars" � No. 3, "DWTS Results" � No. 6, "Grey's Anatomy" � No. 8 and "Desperate Housewives" � No. 9. Between "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives" and "Private Practice," ABC placed the Top 3 TV series of the sweep with Women 18-49. ABC's "V" and "Modern Family" registered as the Top 2 freshman series during November in Adults 18-49.

� 10 o'clock Hour (M-F Live + Same Day): During November, ABC is up in the 10 o'clock hour during the week in both Total Viewers (+11% - 8.3 million vs. 7.5 million) and Adults 18-49 (+14% - 2.5/7 vs. 2.2/6).
