Please Note: ABC’s Thursday lineup was pre-empted in Philadelphia for local NFL coverage.


Building week to week in viewers (+47%) and young adults (+33%) the season finale of ABC’s Wipeout (8-9pm) drew the show’s biggest audience in 7 weeks and equaled its highest Adult 18-49 number since its season premiere in early May – since 8/1/13 and 5/9/13, respectively.  Versus its year-ago finale, Wipeout was up year to year by 13% in Total Viewers and held even in Adults 18-49.


One week before its season premiere (on Thursday, 9/26/13 from 9-11pm), ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy marked its most-watched repeat telecast in 3 years and its best young adult number in 1-1/2 years – since 9/16/10 and 3/8/12, respectively.


In the 10pm hour among Adults  18-49, ABC’s repeat Scandal beat an NBC News Special by 20% and CBS’ repeat Elementary by 20%.  In viewers and young adults, Scandal earned its 2nd-highest-ever repeat numbers.

    GJ Wipeout! See you next season!

    3 others and I all choose someone early, whether in the qualifier or the first round to select as the person we’d hope win it. I was successful 4x, including these last 2 episodes, so it was a nice run for me!

    Great news for WO. Let’s give a lot of credit to the return of Jill Wagner, who is just FNE and mesmerizing as the sideline commentator. And I give credit to the two Johns also for their non-stop funniness. But “The Wipeout Zone” at the end seems to be getting a tad easy (I know, they are shot in to freezing cold water from a platform and have to run a disorienting icy obstacle course to the finish and I don’t have to do it) or maybe its become too familiar to the audience. Time to change it. See ya next season, WO!
