"Secret Millionaire" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Continuing to surge over its lead-in at 8:00 p.m. in viewers (+3.0 million) and young adults (+69%) against an NCAA Basketball-boosted CBS and growing week to week (+2%/+8%), ABC's "Secret Millionaire" (10.5 million and 2.7/8) beat out its original competition on NBC ("America's Next Great Restaurant" = 3.7 million and 1.3/4) and Fox ("The Simpsons"/"Bob's Burgers" = 5.4 million and 2.5/7) by solid margins in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. In fact ABC's freshman "Secret Millionaire" towered over its freshman competition, more than doubling NBC's "America's Next Great Restaurant" by 6.8 million viewers and by 108% in Adults 18-49. The broad-appealing ABC unscripted series ranked No. 1 for the 4th time in as many telecasts in the hour with key Women 18-49 (3.2/9-tie).

· Building audience throughout its telecast, "Secret Millionaire" gained 1.8 million viewers (9.6 million to 11.4 million) and 25% in Adults 18-49 (2.4/7 to 3.0/8) from its first half-hour to second half-hour.

· Once again delivering big year-over-year gains for ABC in the hour, on average "Secret Millionaire" is improving its time period by 47% in Total Viewers (11.5 million vs. 7.8 million) and by 43% in Adults 18-49 (3.0/8 vs. 2.1/6).

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 40% currently, from 36% at the same point in 2010. 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.
