In fact, the ABC program has taken the top spot for the 3rd time in the last 4 weeks in all 3 measures.

Season to date, "Nightline" ranks No. 1 in late-night among Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49, ahead of both NBC's "The Tonight Show" and CBS' "The Late Show." This marks the 2nd straight year that the ABC program is taking the top spot in overall viewers and in the key adult news demo.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Monday - Friday)

During the week of March 5, 2012, "Jimmy Kimmel Live's" week of repeats grew over its most recent repeat week (w/o 12/26/11) by 3% in Total Viewers (1.605 million vs. 1557 million) to attract its 2nd-biggest repeat audience this season. "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).

· ABC's "JKL" (M-F 12:00 a.m.) topped NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's" week of repeats (M-F 12:35 a.m.) by 10% in Total Viewers (1.605 million vs. 1.458 million), marking the ABC late-night program's 2nd consecutive win over the NBC program.

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.
