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

CBS's late night duo of LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN and THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON both delivered time period wins in viewers and key demographics, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Nov. 6.

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, 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).
