ABC Wins Tuesday/"Body of Proof" Opens Big

Some early info on ABC's Tuesday, ahead of the regular press release.

With a Dancing recap show, followed by the Season 12 premiere of DWTS Results Show leading into the series debut of Body of Proof, ABC took first place on Tuesday evening, upsetting second-place CBS' all-original line up by 4% in Total Viewers and by 6% in Adults 18-49. In fact, DWTS Results stood as Tuesday's #1 TV show and Body of Proof opened with a dominant victory in the 10 o'clock hour.

· In Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, ABC marked its 2nd strongest Tuesday performance this season.

· The Net grew its overall audience from the same night last year (3/30/10) with an all-original schedule (DWTS Results/Lost/V) by 4.6 million viewers.

From 8-9pm, ABC's special Dancing recap show (Dancing with the Stars: The Story So Far) ran a strong #2 to CBS' top-rated NCIS, beating NBC's time-period regular The Biggest Loser: Couples by solid margins in viewers (+5.9 million) and young adults (+13%). The recap show ranked #1 in the time period with Women 18-34, beating NCIS by an impressive 26%.

· DWTS: The Story So Far produced the Network's top numbers in the time period in nearly 5 months with viewers and young adults - since 11/2/10.

Soaring to the top of the 9 o'clock hour to rank as Tuesday's #1 TV show, the season premiere of ABC's DWTS Results Show outpaced its nearest competitor (CBS' NCIS: Los Angeles) by 3.6 million viewers and by 20% in Adults 18-49. Radio host Mike Catherwood was the first celebrity voted off the show this season.

· DWTS Results Show rose sharply over its premiere on the same night last year, surging by 31% in Total Viewers and by 40% in Adults 18-49. In fact it registered as the most-watched-ever season opener for DWTS Results Show.

Taking full control of the time period, ABC's Body of Proof beat out second-place CBS' The Good Wife by 39% in Total Viewers and by a massive 58% in Adults 18-49.

· Generating enormous time-period improvement, Body of Proof delivered ABC's best results in the slot with a regular hour-long program in 6 years in Total Viewers and in 3 years in Adults 18-49 - since 3/1/05 and 3/25/08, respectively. Versus ABC's averages with regular programming in the hour this season, Body of Proof improved the time slot by 117% in Total Viewers and by 114% in Adults 18-49.

· ABC's Body of Proof qualifies as TV's 2nd-most-watched series debut of the 2010-11 season, behind only the September premiere of CBS' high-profile reboot of Hawaii Five-0. In addition, it was ABC's most-watched midseason drama debut in 4 years and its top-rated among Adults 18-49 in 2 years - since 3/15/07 and 3/9/09, respectively.

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.
