ABC draws big audience for Jaycee Dugard interview
Interview with California woman who was held captive for 18 years draws big audience for ABC
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The story of a California woman kidnapped and held prisoner by a sex offender for 18 years has proven compelling for television viewers.

The Nielsen Co. says 14.8 million people watched ABC's Diane Sawyer interview Jaycee Dugard in a two-hour special Sunday. Dugard, who was 11 when she was kidnapped and is now 31, has a memoir about her experience being published on Tuesday.

The audience was more than triple the number of people who watched a couple of drama reruns on ABC the previous Sunday night. It was the most-watched summertime newsmagazine since a 2004 episode of "60 Minutes."



It was also the most-watched Sunday night program on ABC, not including sports, since the Academy Awards in February.
