Quick Take for Tuesday, September 18, 2012 (Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Ratings)

"A Special Edition of 20/20" (9:00-11:00 p.m.)

Shooting up from its lead-in at 9:00 p.m. and gaining audience from its first to second hour against all-original competition on NBC ("Go On"/"The New Normal"/"Parenthood") and Fox ("So You Think You Can Dance" season finale), "A Special Edition of 20/20 - Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time with Barbara Walters" produced a summer-high in the 2-hour time period with ABC's best non-sports results in the slot in 4 months with Total Viewers (7.4 million), Adults 18-49 (1.6/4) and Adults 25-54 (2.3/6) - since 5/22/12. "I Love Lucy" won best TV show of all time.

· During its second hour from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ABC's "20/20" ranked No. 1 with Adults 25-54, beating NBC's "Parenthood" by 9% (2.4/6 vs. 2.2/6). In addition, the ABC newsmagazine beat out the NBC first-run drama by 2.7 million viewers (7.7 million vs. 5.0 million) and held a 17% advantage with Teens 12-17 (0.7/3 vs. 0.6/3).

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 45% currently, from 42% 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.
