ABC's JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE Attracts 2nd-Biggest Audience This Season

During the week of November 26, 2012, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel LIVE shot up over the prior week by 22% in Total Viewers to attract its 2nd-biggest audience this season, behind only the show's Brooklyn Homecoming week 4 weeks ago. In fact, this week ranked among JKL's Top 5 most-watched weeks ever. JKL also surged week to week by 14% in Adults 18-49. In addition, JKL grew its overall audience over the year-ago week by 22%.

During the week, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live stood as the #3 talk show in late-night in Total Viewers, behind only NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman.

ABC's JKL (M-F 12am) dominated CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (M-F 12:35am) by a season-best 44% in Total Viewers and by 15% in Adults 18-49, beating the CBS late-night program in both Nielsen measures on each of the 10 weeks of the season. JKL drew a bigger audience than Ferguson on all 5 days of the week, including JKL's repeat telecasts on Thursday and Friday outdrawing original telecasts of Ferguson on both days.

Featuring DWTS: All Stars champions Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, Malibu Country's Reba McEntire and Mike Tyson on Tuesday (11/27/12), Jimmy Kimmel Live pulled in its biggest single-day audience since May 2010 - since 5/25/10. In fact, Tuesday's telecast stood as JKL's 3rd-most-watched on any night in its nearly 10-year history.
