NBC RATINGS RESULTS FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 16-22

BURBANK, Calif. � April 24, 2007 � NBC averaged a 2.1 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers overall for the week of April 16-22, according to "live plus same day" in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Averages for the week of April 16-22 in adults 18-49 were Fox (3.9/12), ABC (3.3/9), CBS (2.6/7), NBC (2.1/6), Univision (1.7/5), CW (1.3/4) and Telemundo (0.4/1). In overall total viewers the weekly averages were Fox (10.3 million), CBS (9.6 million), ABC (9.5 million), NBC (6.2 million), Univision (3.8 million), CW (3.0 million) and Telemundo (0.9 million).

In regular program averages through the first 31 weeks of the 2006-07 season, NBC is running even with last year's average in adult 18-49 rating (3.3 vs. 3.3). NBC and Fox (which is up 2 percent versus last year in regular program averages with a 4.2 vs. last year's 4.1) are the only major networks that are matching or bettering their year-ago regular-program averages. By that measure, both CBS and ABC are down 8 percent (from a 3.9 at this point last year to a 3.6 currently for both networks).

NBC highlights for the week of April 16-22:

* On Wednesday, the regular time period debut of "Thank God You're Here" was #1 in adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and other key measures.

* Wednesday's "Thank God You're Here" improvised NBC's highest 18-49 rating in this hour in four months, posting increases of 35 percent in 18-49 and 24 percent in total viewers versus the prior four-week average for the time period.

* On Sunday, the live season finale of "The Apprentice" won its time period in adults 18-49, adults 18-34, adults 25-54 and other key measures. "The Apprentice" finale achieved that series' highest results in all key measures since January 28.
