· For the week, ABC's JKL outperformed CBS' Ferguson in Total Viewers (+5%) for the 5th week running and topped the CBS late-night program in Adults 18-49 (+8%) for the 3rd time in the last 4 weeks.

· On average for the season to date (30 weeks), Jimmy Kimmel Live posts increases over the comparable weeks last year in both Total Viewers (+4%) and Adults 18-49 (+3%).
