"FlashForward" (8:00-10:01 p.m.)
Returning to ABC's schedule for the first time in 3-1/2 months, opposite stiff competition from CBS' NCAA Basketball Tournament and NBC's original 2-hour comedy block, freshman "FlashForward" drew an average audience of 6.5 million viewers during its broadcast.
The No. 1 non-sports program in its regular 8:00-9:00 p.m. time period with Total Viewers, "FlashForward" (6.5 million) topped its original competition in the hour, besting NBC's comedies ("Community"/"Parks and Recreation") by 35% (4.8 million). The ABC rookie also defeated its regular competition in the opening hour of prime in Adults 25-54 (2.4/7) and key Women (W18-49/W25-54).
In its usual 8:00-9:00 p.m. time slot, "FlashForward" attracted ABC's biggest overall audience (6.5 million) since January and its highest Adult 18-49 non-sports number (1.9/6) since December -- since 1/21/10 and 12/3/09, respectively.
Despite facing the College Basketball Tournament, "FlashForward" held steady among Adults 18-49 from its first to second hour, building 5% in its final half-hour at 9:30 p.m. (1.9/6 to 2.0/6). The drama also gained audience from its first to second hour among Adults 25-54 (+4%) and across all key Men: M18-34 (+7%), M18-49 (+7%) and M25-54 (+5%).
TV's top freshman gainer this season with young adult viewers via DVR playback, "FlashForward" surges from its first-reported overnight numbers by 1.8 million viewers and by 9-tenths of an Adult 18-49 rating point (+31%), from the Live + Same Day ratings to the Live + 7 Day DVR finals.
