The venerable ABC newsmagazine has returned for yet another season. A staple of the Friday night schedule, will this newsmagazine ever be cancelled or is it virtually guaranteed to see a 39th season? Stay tuned!
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
6/25 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

Last year comparison: The 37th season of 20/20 averaged a 1.16 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.20 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
