"ABC News Special - Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words" is a Big Draw on Tuesday

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

Opposite NBC with its season finale/premiere line up (season finale of It's Worth What?/Tuesday finale of America's Got Talent/season premiere of Parenthood), ABC marked its strongest non-sports Tuesday since the end of the season in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.

At 8 o'clock, ABC's Wipeout ranked #1 in Adults 18-49 for the 4th week in a row. Wipeout dominated its original unscripted competition in the hour, outdelivering NBC's season finale of It's Worth What? by 30% in viewers and by 82% in young adults. In addition, the broad-skewing Wipeout made ABC the highest-rated broadcaster in the time period with Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11 for the 7th week running.

· Wipeout equaled ABC's top young adult number in the hour since May - since 5/24/11.

Surging from its lead-in at 9pm and gaining audience throughout its 2-hour broadcast, the ABC News Special - Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words finished #2 to NBC's combo of America's Got Talent Tuesday finale and Parenthood premiere from 9-11pm among Total Viewers. Building in its second hour, the ABC News Special moved ahead of NBC to become the most-watched TV program from 10-11pm, topping CBS and outdrawing the Talent-led season opener of Parenthood by 28%. With Diane Sawyer reporting, the ABC News Special allowed viewers for the first time to hear actual interviews the former first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, recorded for history.

· In Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49, the ABC News Special - Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words produced the Net's strongest non-sports numbers in the 2-hour time period in nearly 4 months - since 5/24/11, with the season finale of Dancing with the Stars. In fact looking at the Tuesday 9-11pm time period outside of the regular Sept-May TV Season, the program attracted ABC's biggest non-sports audience in 5 years - since September 2006, with the pre-season premiere of Dancing with the Stars on 9/12/06.

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 42% currently, from 38% 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.
