“The Ticket: First Interview,” which was conducted by David Muir and Robin Roberts, drew 5.1 million total viewers to the Disney-owned network, scoring a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 in the process. That represented the largest audience on the night (bar “60 Minutes”) and the largest for ABC in eight weeks.

Later on, replays of “Press Your Luck” and “Match Game” both scored a 0.4 rating and 2.7 million and 2.5 million viewers respectively.
