Ratings Report for ABC News' "Nightline" For the Week of November 1, 2010

"NIGHTLINE" IS #1 IN TOTAL VIEWERS FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE WEEK

"NIGHTLINE" IS #1 FOR THE SEASON TO DATE AMONG ADULTS 18-49, ADULTS 25-54 AND TOTAL VIEWERS FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1993

ABC News' "Nightline" is the number one program among Total Viewers (3.92 million), outperforming NBC's "The Tonight Show" and CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" according to Nielsen Media Research for the week of November 1, 2010. This is the fifth week in a row "Nightline" has been the number one program among Total Viewers. For the week, "Nightline" placed second among Adults 25-54 (1.60 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.25 million).

Due to Election Day on Tuesday 11/2/10, "Nightline" and "The Late Show" were both coded specials and "The Tonight Show" was preempted; ratings for that night are excluded from the averages. The weekly averages for all three programs are based on four days (Monday, Wednesday - Friday).

Season-to-date, "Nightline" also ranks in first place among Total Viewers, A25-54 and A18-49. This is the first time "Nightline" has been in first place at this point in the season since at least the 1993-94 season when "Letterman" began on CBS.

"Nightline" narrowed the demo gap with "The Late Show" by -67% versus last week and -50% versus the same week last year.

ABC News' "Nightline" is anchored by Cynthia McFadden, Terry Moran and Bill Weir. John Donvan and Vicki Mabrey are correspondents. James Goldston is the executive producer. The program airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m., ET on the ABC Television Network.
