From its first to its second half-hour, "American Gladiators" grew by 21 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 4.7/11 from a 3.9/10) and by 13 percent, or 1.2 million persons, in total viewers (to 10.7 million from 9.5 million).

"American Gladiators" was the #1 telecast on any broadcast network last night among adults 18-34, men 18-49, men 18-34, teens 12-17 and kids 2-11.
