It looks like Diane Sawyer's debut on "World News" lifted ratings above average based on the preliminary  Nielsen results where  8.934 million people watched ABC from 6:30p  to 7p on Monday night.

Disclaimer: that's much more preliminary than typical overnight numbers for primetime because all its doing is measuring every ABC affiliate for that time period, and not every ABC affiliate carries "World News" from 6:30p-7p.  Official final numbers will not be available until next week.

This season 'World News"  is averaging around 8 million viewers and its Monday average is 8.4 million.
