In fact, this week marked JKL's 2nd-most-watched week in its nearly 10-year history, behind only last year's Thanksgiving week (w/o 11/21/11). JKL also surged week to week by 28% in Adults 18-49 to deliver its strongest non-NBA finals week in nearly 3 years - since w/o 11/3/08.

In addition, JKL delivered huge gains over the year-ago week (w/o 10/31/11), soaring year-to-year by 23% in Total Viewers and by 20% in Adults 18-49.

· During the week, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live stood as the #3 talk show in late-night in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, behind only NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman.

· ABC's JKL (M-F 12am) topped NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (M-F 12:35am) by solid double-digit margins in Total Viewers (+26%) and Adults 18-49 (+19%), drawing a larger overall audience than the NBC late-night program on all 6 weeks of the new season to date.

In fact, JKL has drawn a bigger audience than Ferguson in 29 of the 30 days of the season.

· Featuring a first-time appearance by Jimmy Kimmel's idol, David Letterman, on Wednesday (10/31/12), Jimmy Kimmel Live delivered its highest-rated telecast in Adults 18-49 on any night since June - since 6/19/12.
