UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Oct. 3, 2013 - NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" have delivered their biggest premiere-week audiences in adults 18-49 in three years.

Leno and Fallon have launched their 2013-14 seasons with dominant wins versus their broadcast time-period competition for the week of Sept. 23-27, generating bigger audiences than their slot rivals in adults 18-49, total viewers and all other key measures.

Both "The Tonight Show" and "Late Night" were up versus premiere week last year in every key ratings measure while Fallon generated his biggest overall audience for any of his five season-premiere weeks to date.

"The Tonight Show" jumped 29% versus last year's premiere week in 18-49 viewers (to 1.205 million from 935,000) for its top week-one result since 2010. "Late Night" was also up 29% (764,000 vs. 591,000) for its biggest 18-49 audience since 2010.

"The Tonight Show" has now delivered bigger 18-49 audiences than "Late Show" for the last 45 weeks in a row and topped "Kimmel" for 35 of their 38 head-to-head weeks. In total viewers, Leno has out-delivered "Late Show" for 49 weeks in a row and "Kimmel" for 38 of 38 weeks.

Fallon has now generated bigger 18-49 audiences than "Late Late Show" for 50 of the last 51 weeks and prevailed in total viewers for 47 of the last 49 weeks. Versus "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour, Fallon has out-delivered the ABC series for 38 of 38 weeks in viewers 18-49 and 23 weeks in a row in total viewers.

For the premiere week of Sept. 23-27, encore telecasts of "Last Call with Carson Daly" generated the show's biggest 18-49 audience (474,000) and biggest overall audience (1.028 million) in more than a year, since the week of Sept. 3-7, 2012.

For a second week in a row, "Last Call" encores edged originals of CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in viewers 18-49, even though "Late Late Show" starts an hour earlier.
