ABC Leads in Upscale Adults 18-49 During Premiere Week

Based on Nielsen's just-released NAD (National Audience Demographics) Live + Same Day Non-Sports Ratings for Premiere Week:

· ABC stood as the #1 network by wide margins during season premiere week (w/o 9/24/12) among Upscale Adults 18-49 ($100K+ annual income homes = 2.8 rating) in the non-sports averages, leading by double digits over CBS (+17% - 2.4 rating), Fox (+17% - 2.4 rating) and NBC (+27% - 2.2 rating). In addition, ABC also delivered the top ranks in other key Upscale categories, including high-income professionals or managers and those with 4+ years of college.

· ABC claimed 5 of the Top 15 entertainment telecasts during the first week of the season with Upscale Adults 18-49 (AD18-49 in $100K+ annual income homes), including the No. 1 series overall and 2 of the Top 3: "Modern Family" (8.8 rating) - #1, "Grey's Anatomy" (5.6 rating) - #3, "Revenge" (4.2 rating) - #7, "The Middle" (3.8 rating) - #11 and "Once Upon a Time" (3.7 rating) - #13. In fact, ABC's "Modern Family" outdelivered the No. 2 show by an impressive 42% (CBS' "The Big Bang Theory").

· Reporting an annual median income of $78,600 for its young adult audience, ABC's "Shark Tank" drew premiere week's highest median income for any broadcast TV show.
