Opposite NBC's "America's Got Talent", the season finale of ABC's "Wipeout" scored in the Net's strongest non-sports delivery in the 9 o'clock hour in Adults 18-49 (2.6/7) since June - since 6/1/10.

"Final Witness" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

ABC's special "Final Witness" drew the Net's largest non-sports audience (4.8 million) at 10:00 p.m. in over 3 months - since 6/1/10. "Final Witness" outperformed CBS' "Fashion's Night Out 2010" by 60% in Total Viewers (4.8 million vs. 3.0 million) and by 133% in Adults 18-49 (1.4/4 vs. 0.6/2).

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 38% currently, from 32% at the same point in 2009. 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.
