ABC Sunday Prime (7-11pm - 5.1 million and 1.3/4 in AD18-49): Against strong Sunday competition from the season finale of The Walking Dead on AMC, another high-rated NCAA Basketball Tournament-overrun on CBS and NBC with the iHeart Radio Music Awards, ABC held steady week to week in Adults 18-49 (1.3/4 vs. 1.4/4) and delivered the night's #1 scripted broadcast series with Once Upon a Time (1.7/5). Please Note: ABC started off the night with a repeat AFHV in the opening hour this week.

America's Funniest Home Videos-R (7-8pm - 5.6 million and 1.1/4 in AD18-49): Opposite CBS' NCAA overrun in the 7 o'clock hour, ABC's repeat America's Funniest Home Videos took second in Adults 18-49 (1.1/4).

· Based on Live + 3 Day data for last Sunday's telecast, ABC's Secrets and Lies grew for the 2nd consecutive week to a new series high among Adults 18-49 (after matching a L+SD series high).

Against strong Sunday competition from the season finale of "The Walking Dead" on AMC, another high-rated NCAA Basketball Tournament-overrun on CBS and the "iHeartRadio Music Awards" on NBC, ABC held steady week to week in Adults 18-49 (1.3/4 vs. 1.4/4) and delivered the night's No. 1 scripted broadcast series with "Once Upon a Time" (1.7/5).

Spiking 55% over its lead-in at 8:00 p.m., ABC's "Once Upon a Time" ranked No. 1 in its hour for the 5th week in a row in Adults 18-49 (1.7/5-tie). The ABC drama was on par with its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating (1.7/5 vs. 1.8/6). In addition, the show was up for the 2nd week with Women 18-34 (+5%) and also grew with Teens 12-17 (+8%).

"Secrets and Lies" (9:00-10:00 p.m. - 5.1 million and 1.3/4 in AD18-49):

Facing "The Walking Dead" finale at 9:00 p.m., ABC's "Secrets and Lies" once again beat out its CBS drama competition in the hour by 18% in Adults 18-49 (1.3/4 vs. 1.1/3 for "Madam Secretary"/"The Good Wife"), while tying Fox's back-to-back episodes of "The Last Man on Earth" (1.3/4).

· Based on Live + 3 Day data for last Sunday's telecast, ABC's "Secrets and Lies" grew for the 2nd consecutive week to a new series high among Adults 18-49 (after matching a L+SD series high). The fourth episode of the new ABC drama delivered a series best 2.2 rating in Adults 18-49 in the L+3 numbers, up 5% week to week (vs. a 2.1). The new drama jumped +47% in Adults 18-49 over its L+SD number (1.5 rating) and added on another +1.8 million viewers, bringing its total to 7.4 million Total Viewers after 3 days of TV playback (from 5.6 million in L+SD).

Despite facing the final half-hour of "The Walking Dead" finale at 10:00 p.m., "Revenge" finished within 1-tenth of its week ago Adult 18-49 rating.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on the 2014-15 season for premiere telecast or an average for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.
