CBS'S "LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN" PLACES FIRST IN VIEWERS, ADULTS 18-49 AND ADULTS 25-54

"The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" is First in Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Claims First Ever Outright Win in Adults 18-49

THE LATE LATE SHOW notched its first ever outright time period victory in adults 18-49 since Craig Ferguson premiered on Jan. 3, 2005.

Editor's Note: All programs were preempted last year on Tuesday, Nov. 4h for Election Day.

In adults 18-49 season-to-date, LATE SHOW has +10% lead (1.1/04 vs. 1.0/04) compared to 2008's -15% (1.1/05 vs. 1.3/05).

THE LATE LATE SHOW posted a 1.4/05 in households with 1.86m viewers, 0.7/04 in adults 25-54, 0.6/03 in adults 18-49 and 0.3/02 in adults 18-34.

LATE LATE SHOW has a +40% advantage in viewers (1.95m vs. 1.39m) compared to trailing by -2% last year (1.86m vs. 1.90m). In adults 18-49, LATE LATE SHOW and "Late Night" are tied (0.6/04 vs. 0.6/03). In 2008, CBS trailed NBC by -14% in adults 18-49 (0.6/04 vs. 0.7/04).
