BURBANK, Calif. � February 12, 2008 � Strong performances throughout the week from such unscripted series as "American Gladiators," "The Celebrity Apprentice" and "Deal or No Deal" combined with solid showings from the scripted dramas "Law & Order," "Las Vegas" and the debut of "Lipstick Jungle" to lead NBC to an average 2.5 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.6 million viewers overall for the week of February 4-10, according to in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research. .

"American Gladiators" and "Deal or No Deal" delivered a one-two punch Monday night, propelling NBC to its fourth consecutive Monday win in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49. Monday's "Deal" and "Gladiators" were NBC's top-ranked shows of the week in adults 18-49, while "Deal" was also NBC's "most-watched" show of the week in total viewers.

On Thursday, "The Celebrity Apprentice" surged week-to-week in the 9 p.m. hour, while the debut of "Lipstick Jungle" at 10 p.m. pulled off a time-period win in key adult-female demos, including women 18-49, despite significant lead-in advantages for the competing ABC drama "Eli Stone."

And on Friday, both "1 vs 100" and "Las Vegas" won their slots in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key measures. For "1 vs 100," it was the third week in a row the show has won its time period in both 18-49 and overall total viewers.

Through 20 weeks of the 2007-08 season, Fox is leading in primetime's key demographic of adults 18-49, with NBC and ABC tied for second place.
