In a rough season for ad-supported TV outlets, a few shows managed to stand out amid a landscape of overall declines.
ABC News’ 20/20, anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach, won the broadcast season for the first time in five years, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data. In total viewership since the season began on Sept. 21, 2020, 20/20 had a 3% lead on Dateline, but the lead was greater in the advertiser-coveted age demographics. In the 18-49 demo, the 9 p.m. ET show was up by 25% while in the 25-54 range, its lead was 17%.
