Oprah Gives, ABC Receives a Sunday Win
'Big Give' premiere draws strong ratings

Fast National ratings for Sunday, March 2, 2008 (USA)

The Oprah Nation flocked to ABC Sunday, giving the network a ratings victory for the night.

Led by the premiere of "Oprah's Big Give," ABC averaged a 7.3 rating/12 share in primetime. FOX came in second with a 5.9/9 (though that may change some as the network had live sports early in the evening). CBS, 5.3/9, edged NBC, 5.2/8, for third, and The CW was, as usual way off the pace at 0.9/1.

ABC and FOX tied for the lead among adults 18-49, each drawing a 4.3 rating in the advertisers' favorite demographic. CBS came in third with a 2.1, just ahead of NBC's 2.0. The CW managed only a 0.5.
