· Among Adults 18-34, ABC's "JKL" (327,000) is the No. 1 broadcast talk show in late-night, beating both NBC's "Leno" (321,000) and CBS' "Letterman" (278,000).

· Fifteen weeks into its new 11:35 p.m. time slot, ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is up over its performance through this point last year by 50% in Total Viewers (2.633 million vs. 1.759 million), by 41 in Adults 18-49 (928,000 vs. 658,000) and by 45% in Adults 18-34 (327,000 vs. 226,000), standing as the only late-night broadcast talk show to improve year over year in all three Nielsen measures.
