 ABC's JIMMY KIMMEL Opens Premiere Week with its Best Numbers in Over 3 Months

Fresh off Jimmy Kimmel's stint as host of the 2012 Emmy Awards, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel LIVE kicked off premiere week of the 2012-13 season (week of September 24, 2012) with its strongest performance in more than 3 months with both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49 - since the weeks of 6//11/12 and 6/18/12, respectively. Marking its 4th consecutive week of gains, JKL grew over the prior week by 6% in Total Viewers and by 2% in Adults 18-49.

· ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live ranked as the #3 talk show in late-night in Total Viewers during the opening week of the 2012-13 season, behind only NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman.

· For the 2nd year in a row, ABC's JKL (M-F 12am) beat NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (M-F 12:35am) during week 1 of the season in both Total Viewers (+16%) and Adults 18-49 (+6%). JKL outperformed the NBC late-night program on all 5 days of the week in Viewers and in 4 of 5 days among young adults, including JKL's repeat telecast dominating an original telecast of Fallon on Friday.

· ABC's JKL outdelivered CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (M-F 12:35am) by its largest margins ever during the opening week of a season, leading the CBS late-night program by 28% in Total Viewers and by 29% in Adults 18-49. JKL towered over Ferguson by double-digit percentages on all 5 days of the week in both Nielsen measures.
