· No. 1 Network in the 10 o'clock Hour for 2nd Straight November in Key Adults: ABC was November's No. 1 network for the 2nd year in a row during the 10 o'clock hour on Monday-Friday, as a lead-in to affiliates' late-local news. ABC led the No. 2 networks by double digits in Adults 18-49 (+27% - 1.9/6 vs. 1.5/5-NBC) and Adults 25-54 (+20% - 2.4/6 vs. 2.0/6-CBS).
