[via press release from NBC]

Wednesday Primetime Results:

· "Revolution" (1.5/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) equaled its 18-49 rating of last week in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings and is within a tenth of a point of last week's 1.6 in official nationals. Last night's "Revolution" improved by 15% on NBC's time-period result for the same night last year (1.5 vs. 1.3 with comedies) and was up 34% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 3.997 million). Versus NBC's slot average last season, "Revolution" is up by 5% in 18-49 (1.5 vs. 1.4, "live plus same day, non-sports") and up 19% in total viewers (5.372 million vs. 4.509 million).

· Note that in "Live Plus Three Day" ratings last week: "Revolution" added 48% or 0.75 of a point to its next-day "live plus same day" 18-49 rating (to a 2.32 in L+3 from a 1.57 in L+SD) and in total viewers, added 38% or 2.064 million persons (7.525 million vs. 5.461 million).

· "Law & Order: SVU" (1.6/4 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall from 9-10 p.m. ET) matched the year-ago rating for its third episode of the fall (1.6 on Oct. 17, 2012) and virtually matched that telecast's total-viewer result (6.241 million last night vs. 6.245 million last year). From its first half-hour to its second, "SVU" grew by 13% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.7 from a 1.5) and 9% in total viewers (6.5 million vs. 6.0 million).

· Note that in "Live Plus Three Day" ratings last week: "Law & Order: SVU" added 34% or 0.68 of a point to its next-day "live plus same day" 18-49 rating (to a 2.67 in L+3 from a 1.99 in L+SD) and in total viewers, added 29% or 1.993 million persons (8.845 million vs. 6.852 million).

· Week two of "Ironside" (1.1/3 in adults 18-49, 5.2 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) finished within 0.2 of a point of last week's series-premiere 1.3, pending updates, which is the smallest decline in rating point from week 1 to week 2 for any new drama on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox so far this fall. Last night's "Ironside" finished within 0.5 of a point of its "SVU" lead-in, versus a 0.7 gap last week.

· NBC finished the night within 0.9 of a rating point of #1 (1.4 vs. 2.3 for ABC and CBS), cutting in half a gap that stood at 1.8 rating points on the same night one year ago (1.7 vs. 3.5 for Fox on Oct. 10, 2012).

In Late-Night Metered Markets Wednesday night:

· In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.6/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/7; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.5/7.
