hope for haiti telethon TV Ratings: 'Hope for Haiti Now' watched most on ABCFast national ratings for Friday, Jan. 22.

Friday was an interesting night, ratings-wise, because every channel was broadcasting the exact same thing for two hours. Apparently, ABC was the best place to watch the telethon, except for one half-hour (9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.) when NBC won.

The telethon, coupled with a relatively new “20/20,” helped ABC win the night with an average of 5.2 million viewers, 3.4/6 households. ABC and NBC tied for the 18-49 demo with a 1.3 share.
