The Taste (8-10pm – 3.9 million and 1.1/3 in AD18-49):  Opposite Fox’s American Idol and the series debut of Rake from 8-10pm, ABC’s The Taste grew by double digits week to week in Total Viewers (+18%) and Adults 18-49 (+22%).  Head to head in the 2-hour time period, the ABC unscripted show defeated NBC’s comedies (Community/Parks and Recreation/ /The Michael J.

Shark Tank-R Night (10-11pm – 3.9 million and 1.1/3 in AD18-49):  Holding all of its lead-in at 10pm, an encore Shark Tank was up by 8% in Total Viewers to deliver a 4-week high in the hour for ABC – since 12/26/13.



    Impressive spin

  • Golden Star (former dantas)

    ABC, stop. Please, go home. You’re drunk…

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Beating the NBC comedy block is like winning a participation award, yet ABC is content to hold that participation award high above their head like it actually means something.

  • Fred

    Awful ratings for ABC, however fairly profitable . Can’t get much cheaper than The Taste and a Dhark Tank rerun!
