’20/20′ Repeats Ratings High For Second Time In Two Weeks

ABC 2020_2012_624x351On Friday night, ABC’s “20/20″ kept up its ratings momentum, drawing its biggest audience in 18 months, since February, 2012, for the second straight week.

The show, airing at 10pmET/9pmCT, was the #1 newsmagazine of the night by default, as NBC’s “Dateline” didn’t air —- substituted instead by a Halloween-themed Dracula special hosted by MSNBC’s Tamron Hall which drew just 2.2 million total viewers.

7.7 million watched “20/20″ at 10p. The show finished first place in the A25-54 demo, but second to CBS’ “Blue Bloods” in total viewers.

Barbara Walters anchored a “20/20″ investigation, along with Brian Ross, that explored a Chicago baby stolen from a hospital nearly 50 years ago.
