In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

Note: Currently available metered-market averages exclude numerous major markets, including New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore, and are therefore subject to significant revision.

In Nielsen's 56 metered markets (with several major markets currently excluded), household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 3.2/8; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.6/7; and ABC's combo of "Nightline," 2.6/6; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.0/3 with an encore.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters (with several major markets currently excluded), adult 18-49 results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.7/3; "Nightline," 0.8/3; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.4/2 with an encore.

At 12:35 a.m., "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.5/5 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.3/5). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.4/3).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.9/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.


Here are the highlights of the 16 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (8/31/10):

NBC (9.50 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.5, #1) was the network to beat on Tuesday thanks to its mix of an "NBC News Special" (5.70 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 1.3, #T7), "Minute to Win It" (6.03 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 1.7, #T3) and a two-hour "America's Got Talent" (11.31 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 3.0, #1).
