Last night ABC swapped the timeslots of its newsmagazines Primetime: Crime and i-Caught. That may turn out to be a smart ratings move. According to preliminary Nielsen numbers, Primetime: Crime at 10pm earned a series-high rating of 2.4 in the 18-49 demo. That’s 14% growth, week-to-week.

i-Caught at 9pm posted an 11% week-to-week increase, earning a 2.0 in the 18-49 demo.
