ON TUESDAY, A DOMINANT 'LAW & ORDER: SVU,' FEATURING GUEST-STAR ROBIN WILLIAMS IN A RARE DRAMATIC TELEVISION PERFORMANCE, BEATS THE COMPETITION COMBINED IN ADULTS 18-49 AND OTHER KEY MEASURES

'MEDIUM' CONTINUES TO SUMMON STRONG NUMBERS ON MONDAY, UP 17 PERCENT IN 18-49 AND 22 PERCENT IN TOTAL VIEWERS THIS SEASON VERSUS LAST

BURBANK, Calif. � May 6, 2008 � Paced by a strong performance from "Law & Order: SVU," which was NBC's top show of the week in adults 18-49 and total viewers, NBC averaged a 2.0 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers overall for the week of April 28-May 4, according to in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Through 32 weeks of the 2007-08 season, Fox leads in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49, with the race for #2 extremely tight.
