The new quiz show delivered solid retention of its Wednesday premiere in Total Viewers (90%) and Adults 18-49 (83%). 500 Questions built 10% from its first hour to its second hour in Adults 18-49, nearly tying Fox's Wayward Pines for the lead from 9-10pm (1.1/4 vs. 1.2/4).

· 500 Questions delivered ABC's best post-season/summer numbers in the 2-hour time slot since June 2014 in Total Viewers, and, excluding sports, since August 2013 in Adults 18-49 - since 6/19/14 and 8/22/13, respectively.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.
