· Gaining week to week in Adults 18-49 (+7%), What Would You Do? posted it highest rating in 7 weeks - since 1/27/12.

ABC's 20/20 took full control of its newsmagazine competition during the 10 o'clock hour, defeating NBC's Dateline by 1.0 million viewers, by 75% in Adults 25-54 and by 78% in Adults 18-49.
