“The 44th Annual CMA Awards” (8:00-11:00 p.m.)
With the Net’s broadcast of “The 44th Annual CMA Awards,” ABC towered over Wednesday’s prime, beating out its nearest competition on the evening by 5.8 million viewers (16.5 million vs. 10.7 million -  CBS) and by 74% in Adults 18-49 (4.7/13 vs. 2.7/8 – CBS and Fox tied).   In fact ABC’s Adult 18-49 winning advantage on the night with the “CMA Awards” increased noticeably year to year (74% vs. 66% in 2009).  ABC ranked No. 1 in all 6 half-hours of the night in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.  In fact it was a clean sweep on the evening, as theNet finished No. 1 on Wednesday across all key Adult, Men and Women demographics (18-34/18-49/25-54), as well as among Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.

·         In viewers and young adults, ABC posted its strongest Wednesday results in 1 year – since 11/11/10. 

·         The Network hit its best Adult 18-49 number on any night this season, while delivering the top non-sports rating for any evening on any night this season.

·         Retaining 96% of its overall audience from last year (16.5 million vs. 17.2 million) with its 2nd most-watched telecast since 2005, the “CMA Awards” posted its highest Men 18-34 number in 4 years and its best number with Kids 2-11 in 5 years – since 2006 and 2005, respectively.

·         An estimated 33.8 million viewers watched at least some portion of “The 44th Annual CMA Awards” on ABC during its 3-hour broadcast – unduplicated Viewers 2+ that watched 6 minutes or more of the telecast.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 38% currently, from 33% at the same point in 2009. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
