Barbara Walters' interview of actress Tatum O'Neal, the ex-wife of tennis
great John McEnroe helped drive ABC to a rare Friday night win last week.

For the night (June 28), ABC was first in households, total viewers, adults,
18-through-34, 18-through-49 and 25-through-54.

The interview, which appeared on 20/20 drew 11.1 million viewers,
making 20/20 the most watched show on TV that night.

The show was also first in households, adults 18-through-49 and adults
25-through-54.

In part, the interview was a response to McEnroe's autobiography in which he
had some unflattering things to say about his ex-wife.

Among other things O'Neal countered that McEnroe used
performance-enhancing drugs to boost his tennis game during his playing days.
