· Scoring season highs for the 2nd week running, America's Funniest Home Videos generated its most-watched telecast in exactly 1 year and equaled its highest Adult 18-49 number in over 1 year - since 2/20/11 and 1/30/11, respectively.

Surging over its lead-in (+50%) at 8pm against season-premiere competition (CBS' Amazing Race) and the 500th episode of Fox's The Simpsons, ABC's Once Upon a Time stood as Sunday's top-rated show and dominated its hour among Adults 18-49. During the 8 o'clock hour, ABC's Once Upon a Time beat out CBS with the Amazing Race opener by 15%, Fox's animated comedies by 30% (The Simpsons/Napoleon Dynamite) and NBC's The Voice replay by 58%.

· Once Upon a Time's overall audience jumped week to week by 1.1 million viewers.

Building week to week by double digits in viewers (+17%) and young adults (+22%), ABC's Desperate Housewives registered as the 2nd-most-watched show overall during the 9 o'clock hour, outdrawing NBC's season premiere of The Apprentice. The ABC drama ranked #1 in its time slot with key Women (W18-49/W25-54).
