"JKL" was up over its year-ago repeat week by 10% in Total Viewers (1.454 million on w/o 3/7/11), delivering the largest year-to-year gain of any late-night talk show (broadcast or cable).

Further, each repeat telecast of "JKL" drew a larger overall audience than each corresponding original telecast of "Ferguson" on every night of the week.

· Season to date (25 weeks), "JKL" is building on its overall audience through the same weeks last year by 3% in Total Viewers (1.758 million vs. 1.702 million), growing the most year to year of any late-night broadcast talk show.
