On Thursday, February 27, 2014, ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" catapulted over Wednesday by 45% in Total Viewers (3.559 million vs. 2.456 million) to score its 2nd-most-watched telecast ever on any night in late-night, behind only the Matt Damon takeover episode (on 1/24/13). In addition, "JKL" grew day to day by 94% in Adults 18-49 (1.214 million vs. 625,000) to its best performance in nearly 3 months - since 12/5/13. Thursday's "JKL" featured Kerry Washington, Michael Strahan and musical guest Juicy J featuring Wiz Khalifa.

"JKL" was up over the same day last year (2.381 million and 1.021 million on Thursday, 2/28/13) by 49% in Total Viewers and by 19% in Adults 18-49.

Posting its closest finish yet in both total viewers Adults 18-49, "JKL" delivered its best results since competing with NBC's "Fallon," while the new NBC program fell to its lowest numbers of the past 9 days.
