UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - September 16, 2010 - NBC's late-night lineup has delivered decisive ratings wins for the late-night week of September 6-10, with "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" winning over all cable and broadcast competition in adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Jay and Jimmy also delivered bigger audiences than the ABC and CBS competition in every key ratings category: adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, as well as total viewers. Note that Thursday's NBC telecasts were delayed by a high-rated primetime NFL overrun. All Monday telecasts are excluded from these averages due to the Labor Day holiday.

To date, Jay Leno has ranked #1 for 27 of 27 weeks versus "Late Show" in adult 18-49 rating and total viewers (including one tie in 18-49) since returning as host of "Tonight" on March 1 (excluding the week of Wimbledon delays). Jimmy Fallon has ranked #1 or tied for #1 versus "Late Late Show" for 28 weeks in a row in 18-49 rating (excluding Wimbledon week). In total viewers, Jimmy has won 10 weeks in a row.

In adults 18-49 for the week, Jay's audience was 63 percent bigger than "Late Show's" (1.586 million vs. 971,000), in total viewers, Jay won by 34 percent (4.158 million vs. 3.103 million) and in adults 18-34, his margin was 86 percent (666,000 vs. 359,000).

For the week at 1:35 a.m. ET, encore telecasts of "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.5 rating in 18-49, 0.4 in 18-34) out-rated CBS's originals of "Late Late Show" and ABC's "Kimmel" first-runs in adults 18-49 and adults 18-34.
