Jaycee Dugard/Diane Sawyer Interview Tops Sunday Night Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

jaycee dugard diane sawyer interview top the ratings

Looks like LOTS of people tuned in to hear from Jaycee!

To recap: last month, we learned that Jaycee Dugard, the brave young woman who was kidnapped at age 11 and held against her will for 18 years, had finally agreed to sit down for her first televised interview since she escaped her captors.

We heard that Diane Sawyer would conduct the interview with her on ABC, and then last week we got some details on the show, which aired last night.

The interview brought in a 3.7 rating in the 18-49 ages demo, as well as 14.8 million viewers! It became "TV's most-watched summer newsmagazine telecast in seven years!"

And of course, thanks to the Jaycee/Diane interview, ABC won the night overall.

Did U tune in for the interview? If so, what did U think about it?

    Jaycee is an unbelievably brave woman. In spite of the horrors she suffered for 18yrs, she has an incredibly healthy and positive perspective on life overall. She's amazing.



  2. 2

    Jaycee is an amazing young lady. God bless her and her mom and kids.

    Re: Meggie246624 – Agreed. Her whole situation is absolutely mind-boggling, and for her to come out of it sane is miraculous.

    Jaycee has turned out to be a strong, remarkable and resilient woman under the worst of circumstances
    bless her and her family
    she will still have problems because of it all but she is triumphing and will continue to triumph
    .
    she is so inspirational and intelligent
    wishing an easy road ahead for her and her children
    special place in heaven for them someday

    God blessed Jaycee and her family. In her interview I was so happy to see that she was very calm, smiling and was able to turn that horrible ordeal into something positive. I'll definitely going to buy her book.

    Unbelievable to know all she endured, yet she appeared to be so with it. Shame on all those 60 probation guards who entered the home and never found her. Also, what a Mom she has who never once gave up…..God Bless good Moms like Jaycee's.

    I watched that interview last night and cried on so many parts. Imagine being 14 and lying on the ground in the backyard of some pedophile's house giving birth. She's a whole lot more levelheaded than I think I would be. Very brave and I'm very proud of her!

    THE GIRL IN THAT PICTURE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE WOMAN CLAIMING TO BE JC DUGARD

    A higher power was looking out for her. 18 years of abuse. Her mother was really happy to have her back. And she loves her children. Thank god that evil creep who took her will never see his freedom again. Stay strong Jaycee. To Diane Sawyer very well done program.

    Re: MarioMonjack – They look exactly the same except her hair is dark now and she's older.

    All I did was cry the entire interview. Jaycee is amazing and so beautiful, I hope her life just gets better every waking moment and she lives a happy, healthy, fantastic life. Love to you and your precious family Miss Jaycee Dugard. ps Diane Sawyer is great at her work

    Cant understand why when she had the chance try to get away? It is mindboggling really. She had access to neighbors over the fence and the internet and email. Sure when she was young I can understand but when she was a teenager?
