"Tonight" won the week over "Late Show" by a margin of 25 percent in 18-49 viewers, 32 percent in total viewers and 39 percent in adults 18-34. Jay delivered his biggest total-viewer and 18-34 margins over "Late Show" in four weeks and matched his highest 18-49 margin in four weeks.

To date, Jay Leno has ranked #1 in adult 18-49 rating on 23 of 25 nights versus "Late Show," including a tie, since returning as host of "Tonight" on March 1. In total viewers, Jay has ranked #1 on 25 of 25 nights.

For the week of March 29-April 2, Jay's average 1.430 million adults 18-49 outscored Letterman's 1.145; in total viewers, Jay's audience of 4.197 million persons beat Letterman's 3.191 million; and in adults 18-34, Jay's 536,000 topped Letterman's 386,000.
