Related: NIGHTLINE, ABC

On January 10, 2013, ABC's "Nightline" hit time period highs in the 12:35 a.m. time-slot across all target demos: Total Viewers (1.950 million), Adults 25-54 (992,000) and Adults 18-49 (751,000), according to Fast National Preliminary Live + Same Day Nielsen data.

"Nightline" ranked No. 1 versus its CBS and NBC competition in all key target demos (Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49), outdelivering CBS' "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.534 million, 669,000, and 510,000 respectively) and NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.472 million, 651,000 and 572,000, respectively). In fact, in Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49, "Nightline" posted its largest margins of victory yet over both CBS' "Late Late Show" (323,000 and 241,000, respectively) and NBC's "Late Night" (341,000 and 179,000).

"Nightline" surged on ABC's performance on the same night last year (1/12/12) by 28% in Total Viewers (1.950 million vs. 1.519 million), by 31% in Adults 25-54 (992,000 vs. 757,000) and by 41% in Adults 18-49 (751,000 vs. 533,000).

"Nightline" reported on the trial of a petite 32-year-old charged with stabbing, shooting, and slashing her one-time boyfriend; had an exclusive interview with the family of Junior Seau, the NFL superstar and family man whose suicide shocked the nation; and reported on those "snubbed" in the just-announced Oscar nominations.

ABC News' "Nightline" is anchored by Cynthia McFadden, Terry Moran and Bill Weir. Juju Chang is a correspondent. Jeanmarie Condon is the Executive Producer. The program airs weeknights from 12:35 a.m., ET to 1:00 a.m. on the ABC Television Network. Together with "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Nightline" is part of ABC's winning late night strategy of airing news and entertainment programming.
