ABC's "Wipeout" is #1 at 8pm for the 4th Straight Week

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

ABC's Wipeout won the 8pm hour in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 for the 4th week in a row, beating its unscripted time period competition on Fox (So You Think You Can Dance) by 1.2 million viewers and by 13% in young adults. The ABC unscripted show also topped the hour across all key Men demos (M18-34/M18-49/M25-54).

· The broad-appealing ABC series qualified as Thursday's top-rated broadcast show in Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.

At 9pm, ABC's Expedition Impossible took second in the hour in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, behind CBS' Big Brother 13, while finishing as the hour's #1 broadcast program in Teens 12-17.

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Rookie Blue scored a first place win in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 for the 4th straight week, outdrawing NBC's Love Bites by 3.3 million viewers and dominating the NBC original drama by 100% in the key young adult demo.

· Rookie Blue improved its time period year to year for ABC, topping an original airing of Boston Med on the same night last summer (7/15/10) by 13% in viewers and by 8% in Adults 18-49.

"Rookie Blue" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

During the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's "Rookie Blue" scored a first place win in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 for the 4th straight week, outdrawing NBC's "Love Bites" by 3.3 million viewers (5.3 million vs. 2.0 million) and dominating the NBC original drama by 100% in the key young adult demo (1.4/4 vs. 0.7/2).

· "Rookie Blue" grew on its lead-in in Total Viewers and across all key Adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54).

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 41% 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.
