With coverage of Hurricane Sandy for the week of October 29, 2012, "ABC World News with Diane Sawyer" posted in its strongest numbers in both Total Viewers (8.60 million) and Adults 25-54 (2.0 rating/7 share/2.33 million) in 20 months (since w/o 2/7/11 and w/o 2/28/11, respectively), according to Nielsen Media Research.

"World News" turned in its 3 strongest telecasts of the season to date in Viewers and Adults 25-54 on Monday (9.34 and 2.58 million - 10/29/12), Tuesday (9.69 and 2.72 million - 10/30/12) and Wednesday (8.65 and 2.44 million - 10/31/12). In fact the Tuesday broadcast stood as "World News'" top telecast in both overall viewers and in the key adult news demo in over 1 year - since 9/5/11.

"World News" improved on its year-ago week performance by +12% in Total Viewers and by +18% in Adults 25-54 (7.65 million and 1.97 million, respectively, on w/o 10/31/11).

"World News" outperformed "CBS Evening News" by 1.21 million Viewers and by 182,000 A25-54.
