BURBANK, Calif. � July 11, 2007 � Last night, the series debut of "The Singing Bee" scored the highest 18-49 rating and overall viewership of any summer series on any network so far this year, according to preliminary "fast affiliate-based" "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

In adults 18-49, "The Singing Bee" delivered the highest rating for any new summer series premiere on any network in nearly five years (since the July 22, 2002 debut of NBC's "Meet My Folks"). It also marks the highest 18-49 rating for any unscripted series debut on NBC, in or out of the regular season, since the November 3, 2003 premiere of "Average Joe."

In overall total viewers, "Singing Bee" was the most-watched new summer series premiere on any network in more than two years, since the debut of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" on June 1, 2005. For NBC

At 9:30 p.m. ET, the debut of "The Singing Bee" (5.0 rating, 14 share in adults 18-49, 13.1 million viewers overall) dominated its time period in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key measures. Despite unusual competition from Fox's telecast of Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, "Singing Bee" delivered the highest 18-49 rating and overall viewer total for any telecast on any network since the season finale of "House" on May 29.

"Singing Bee" built by 32 percent in 18-49 rating versus the full duration program rating of its lead-in, "America's Got Talent," and by 9 percent in 18-49 versus the final half-hour of "Talent" (a 4.6 from 9-9:30 p.m.)

From 8-9:30 p.m. ET, "America's Got Talent" (3.8/11 in adults 18-49, 11.2 million viewers overall) ranked #1 in adults 18-49 and other key measures opposite Fox's telecast of the All-Star Game, pending updates. From its first half-hour to its third, "Talent" grew by 53 percent in 18-49 (to a 4.6/13 from a 3.0/10) and increased by 42 percent, or 3.9 million persons, in overall total viewers (to 13.3 million from 9.4 million).

At 10 p.m. ET, an encore telecast of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (3.0/9 in 18-49, 8.7 million viewers overall) matched its highest 18-49 rating for a rebroadcast since December 26, 2006 "SVU" ranked a strong #2 in 18-49 to Fox's baseball telecast and was #1 in all key adult-female demographics, pending updates

Preliminary 18-49 averages for Tuesday night are: NBC, 3.7 rating, 11 share; Fox, 3.6/11; CBS, 2.1/6; ABC, 1.8/5; CW, 0.5/2. In overall total viewers, July 10 preliminary results are: Fox, 11.4 million; NBC, 10.7 million; CBS, 7.0 million; ABC, 5.3 million; and CW, 1.3 million.
