A special edition of “20/20″ last night which featured the real story behind the movie “The Blind Side” drew 7.9 million Total Viewers — ABC’s biggest audience in five weeks. The hour, hosted by ABC’s Deborah Roberts, saw its audience grow by nearly 1 million viewers (7.5m to 8.4m) from the first half-hour to the second. The show came in second in Total Viewers at 10pm to CBS’ Kennedy Center Honors (9.21m).

The 10pm hour was Tuesday’s #1 program in two ad-friendly demos: Women 18-34 and Women 18-49.
