Last night from 8-9 p.m. ET, "American Gladiators" (4.3 rating, 10 share in adults 18-49, 10.1 million viewers overall) won the first hour of primetime in adults 18-49, total viewers and nearly all other key ratings categories. "Gladiators" won the hour by a 39 percent margin in adults 18-49 (4.3 vs. 3.1 for Fox's second-place "Prison Break").

From its first to its second half-hour, "American Gladiators" grew by 21 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 4.7/11 from a 3.9/10) and by 13 percent, or 1.2 million persons, in total viewers (to 10.7 million from 9.5 million).

"American Gladiators" was the #1 telecast on any broadcast network last night among adults 18-34, men 18-49, men 18-34, teens 12-17 and kids 2-11.

At 9 p.m. ET, "Deal or No Deal" (4.4/10 in 18-49, 14.1 million viewers overall) was the #1 show of the night in adults 18-49 and total viewers. Head-to-head versus Fox's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "Deal" won the hour by a 22 percent margin in adults 18-49 (4.4 vs. 3.6 for "Sarah Conner" and CBS's encore comedies in the hour).

At 10 p.m. ET, "Medium" (3.4/9 in 18-49, 10.1 million viewers overall) won its time period in adults 18-49 and other key measures. The 3.4 rating for "Medium" marks NBC's top rating in this time period since the opening night of the 2007-08 season (September 24, 2007) and the 10.1 million viewer tally is NBC's top result in this slot by that measure in more than seven months (since June 18, 2007).
