THE FIFTH-SEASON PREMIERE OF 'MEDIUM' SUMMONS NBC'S TOP NUMBERS IN THE TIME PERIOD SINCE NOVEMBER 3, ASCENDING 26 PERCENT IN 18-49 AND 46 PERCENT IN TOTAL VIEWERS VERSUS THE NETWORK'S SEASON AVERAGE FOR THE SLOT

Universal City, Calif. � February 3, 2009 � Last night, NBC's Monday lineup of "Chuck," "Heroes" and "Medium" returned to propel the network to its strongest Monday primetime performance in three months in both adults 18-49 and total viewers, according to "fast affiliate-based" "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Versus its "live plus same day" season-to-date average, "Chuck" last night was up 20 percent in 18-49 rating (3.0 vs. 2.5) and 24 percent in total viewers, despite formidable time-period competition from Fox's "House," CBS's "Big Bang Theory" and "How I Met Your Mother" and ABC's "The Bachelor."

In head-to-head competition in the 9-10 p.m. hour, "Heroes" topped rival drama "24" in adults, men and women 18-49 and adults, men and women 18-34, pending updates.

"Heroes" built on its lead-in from the previous hour by 30 percent in adults 18-49 and by 58 percent in adults 18-34 (to a 4.1 from a 2.6).

"Medium" ascended 26 percent in adults 18-49 (2.9 vs. 2.3) and 46 percent or 2.7 million persons in total viewers (8.5 million vs. 5.8 million) versus NBC's "live plus same day" season-to-date average for the time period. "Medium ranked #2 in adults, men and women 25-54 and men 18-49.
