ABC Leads Friday with the Top Shows - Dr. Ken Holds Strong in Week 2

Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Results:

ABC Friday Prime (8-11pm - 5.5 million and 1.3/5 in AD18-49): ABC led the pack on Friday in Adults 18-49 for the 3rd week in a row this season, outpacing runner-up CBS by 18% (1.3/5 vs. 1.1/4) and the preliminary number for NBC's comedy premiere-led lineup by 44% (0.9/3).

· ABC's Shark Tank (1.5/5) was the night's #1 series for the 3rd straight week, while LMS (1.3/6) and week 2 of Dr. Ken (1.3/5) tied as both the #2 broadcast of the night and as Friday's #1 scripted TV show with young adults. ABC's 20/20 once again ranked as Friday's #1 newsmagazine in Adults 18-49 (1.0/4), ahead of NBC's Dateline.

· At 8pm, Last Man Standing was up for the 2nd straight week in Adults 18-49 (+8%) and beat NBC's premiere of Undateable in the slot by 63% (1.3/6 vs. 0.8/3). LMS also remained the most-watched show overall in the half-hour for the 3rd week running (6.3 million).

· Holding 100% of its LMS lead-in at 8:30pm despite heightened competition this week from NBC's premiere of Undateable and the MLB Playoffs (NY Yankees-LA Dodgers) on TBS, Dr. Ken held strong with its big week-earlier preliminary debut numbers, retaining 93% in Adults 18-49 (1.3/5 vs. 1.4/6, which increased to a 1.5/6 in the Nationals) - the strongest Week 1 to Week 2 retention for a new comedy this season, besting competition including CBS' Life in Pieces (73%), Fox's The Grinder (67%) and Grandfathered (80%). Dr. Ken ranked #1 in its time period for the 2nd week in a row, beating NBC's time period premiere of Undateable by a resounding 63% (1.3/5 vs. 0.8/3).

· In Live + 3 last week's debut of Dr. Ken picked up 1.4 million viewers and half a rating point with young adults (+33%) over its L+SD number to an average of 8.2 million viewers and a 2.0 rating in Adults 18-49.
