ABC Is Friday's Most-Watched Net with "Shark Tank" as the Top Show

ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 6.3 million and 1.4/5 in AD18-49): Opposite Fox's Pac 12 Championship college football game, ABC ranked as the #1 non-sports network by a wide margin in Adults 18-49, leading NBC's all-original lineup by 56% (1.4/5 vs. 0.9/3). In addition, ABC was the most-watched network overall on the night (6.3 million).

· ABC's Shark Tank was Friday's #1 TV show in Total Viewers (7.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.8/6), delivering the top series position on the evening for its 10th consecutive original telecast this season in young adults.

· Season to date, ABC's Friday is up in Total Viewers (+10%) and Adults 18-49 (+6%), marking a 7-year high on the night on both counts - since the comparable weeks of 2007-08.

Last Man Standing (8-8:30pm - 6.6 million and 1.2/5 in AD18-49)

At 8pm, Last Man Standing returned after the prior week's preemption at #1 in the half-hour with Total Viewers (6.6 million) in Adults 18-49 (1.2/5-tie), ranking as the night's top-rated scripted show with young adults.

Shark Tank (9-10pm - 7.1 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49)

Doubling its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 9pm (+100%), ABC's Shark Tank beat its nearest regular competition in the hour by 64% (1.8/6 vs. 1.1/4 - NBC's Grimm). The ABC unscripted series was also by far the most-watched show overall in the slot.
