ABC’s Press Release about V Ratings

“V” Finishes No. 1 Against its 10pm Drama Competition in Men 1849 for the 5th Straight Week, and is the Only Show to Grow its Slot Year to Year in Adults 18-49

“Lost” (9:0010: 00 p.m.)
An encore telecast of “Lost” registered the series’ biggest audience (5.6 million) for any repeat telecast in nearly 2 years and its highest Adult 18-49 number (1.8/5) in well over 1 year – since 5/29/08 and 2/18/09, respectively.
“V TUE” (10:0011: 00 p.m.)
“V” finished No. 1 against its CBS and NBC drama competition in the hour with Men 18-49 (1.9/5) for the 5th consecutive week, topping originals of “The Good Wife” by 12% (1.7/5) and NBC’s “Parenthood” by 19% (1.6/5). In addition “V” beat out CBS’ “The Good Wife” for the 6th straight week among Adults 18-34.
• Building on its “Lost” leadin by 6% among Adults 18-49, “V” continued to improve Tuesday’s 10 o’clock hour for ABC, growing the slot by 19% over the year ago night with original drama programming (1.9/5 vs. 1.6/4 – “Cupid”). In fact ABC was the only net to grow in the 10:00 p.m. hour year to year, as CBS (-12%) and NBC (-38%) were both down from the year-ago night.
