ABC Wins Season's Final Friday - "Barbara Walters: Her Story" Is Top Show with a 2-Year High for ABC in the Time Period

ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 8.4 million and 1.6/6 in AD18-49): With Shark Tank shifting back an hour for its season finale at 8pm (last year's finale aired at 9pm) and Barbara Walters: Her Story from 9-11pm, ABC won its 4th straight Friday of the May Sweep in Adults 18-49, finishing #1 on the night for the 7th consecutive week and beating NBC's original line-up by 33% (1.6/6 vs. 1.2/4). ABC also won the night in Total Viewers, Adults 18-34 and Adults 25-54. The Net posted its most-watched Friday of the season.

· Barbara Walters: Her Story was the #1 TV show of the night in Total Viewers (9.3 million) and Adults 25-54 (2.3/7), while tying Shark Tank as the top-rated show in Adults 18-49 (1.6/7). This season, Shark Tank finished as Friday's #1 regular TV series on 26 of its 28 original telecasts in Adults 18-49.

Shark Tank (8-9pm - 6.5 million and 1.6/7 in AD18-49): The Shark Tank season finale shot to the top of the 8 o'clock hour and delivered season highs for ABC in the time period with Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. Shark Tank was up from its year-ago telecast in the hour (5.1 million and 1.3/5 in AD18-49 on 5/10/13) in Total Viewers (+27%) and Adults 18-49 (+23%). Please Note: Last year's finale aired at 9p, coming out of the 8pm Shark Tank.

Barbara Walters: Her Story (9-11pm - 9.3 million and 1.6/6 in AD18-49): From 9-11pm, ABC's Barbara Walters: Her Story dominated its 2-hour slot in Total Viewers, Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, delivering the Net's biggest overall audience in the time period in nearly 2 years - since 6/15/12.

"BARBARA WALTERS: HER STORY" paid tribute to the broadcast legend's life and legacy. For more than five decades, Walters has entertained and informed generations of Americans. She has arguably interviewed more statesmen and stars than any other journalist in history, and her notable interviews and controversial reports have made some of the most memorable moments on television. On the eve of saying goodbye to daily television, the cameras were turned as Walters candidly answered questions about her own incredible, unparalleled life and career, both on screen and off. It was a rare look at the broadcast legend, told from her point of view. The special included classic clips and memorable moments from throughout her career, some of which has not been seen in decades, including from "The Today Show," The ABC evening news, "20/20," The Barbara Walters Specials, "The 10 Most Fascinating People," and "The View," as well as many surprises throughout the two hours.
