As Fox sprints toward the finish line, ABC and the CW have just exploded off the blocks, taking their first strides onto the upfront track.
Sources on Tuesday said that ABC began cutting its first deals late this afternoon. The CW has been active since late Tuesday morning.
ABC closed out the season ranked third among the demo, averaging a 2.5 rating/7 share, or 3.2 million viewers 18-49, in prime time. That marks a 7 percent decline from the 2009-10 campaign.
