Sunday Night (7:00-11:00 p.m.)

"America's Funniest Home Videos" (7:00-8:00 p.m.)

During the 7 o'clock hour, ABC's repeat "America's Funniest Home Videos" took second to CBS' "60 Minutes" in Total Viewers (4.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.2/4).

"Secret Millionaire" (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Building on its lead in at 8:00 p.m. by double digits with viewers (+17%) and young adults (+25%), ABC's season premiere of "Secret Millionaire" (5.6 million and 1.5/5) earned second in its hour, gaining audience throughout its telecast.

· "Secret Millionaire" produced ABC's top summertime (Memorial Day-Labor Day) numbers with regular programming in the time period since 2008 in Total Viewers, and since 2009 in Adults 18-49 - since 7/6/08 and 8/30/09, respectively.

"EM: Weight Loss Edition" (9:00-11:00 p.m.)

From 9:00-11:00 p.m., ABC's season opener of "EM: Weight Loss Edition" finished as the No. 1 series among Adults 18-49 (1.5/4) in its 2-hour time period.

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 44% currently, from 41% at the same point in 2011. 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.
