NBC spins the numbers for Friday, February 7.

[via press release from NBC]

In Late-Night Metered Markets Friday Night (note that the Philadelphia market is excluded from these averages):

· Jimmy Fallon's final telecast hosting "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" has set a series record in metered-market households.

· With a 12:05-1:05 a.m. ET telecast that followed NBC's coverage of the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony, Fallon averaged a 4.8 rating, 13 share in households in 55 of the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research (with the Philadelphia market excluded last night), the show's highest-ever overnights for any night of the week, topping the prior record set one night earlier of a 4.6/15 following the final telecast of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

· It's also the highest metered-market household rating for the "Late Night" franchise in currently available records dating back to the mid 1990s.

· The final "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" more than tripled the show's season-average 1.5 metered-market household rating heading into this week (through Feb. 2). In 24 of the 25 markets with Local People Meters (Philadelphia excluded), Friday's "Late Night" scored a 2.1/10, up 250% from the season-average 0.6 heading into this week.

· Guests on "Late Night" Friday included Andy Samberg and musical guest The Muppets.

· Fast-official national ratings for "Late Night" are expected later today.
