UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 7, 2012 - NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" has delivered bigger audiences in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key ratings categories versus CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" in a week of rebroadcasts for both shows during which Monday results were excluded due to the Memorial Day holiday. Also note that Wednesday NBC results are excluded from the averages due to a hockey overrun.

Through the first 37 weeks of the 2011-12 broadcast year, "Tonight" has increased its total-viewer margin over "Late Show" to 16 percent (3.695 million vs. 3.196 million), up from the year-ago season-to-date advantage of 10 percent. Jimmy Fallon has also established a total-viewer lead over "Late Late Show" this season of 16 percent (1.763 million vs. 1.521 million), up from last year's advantage of 1 percent. Jimmy has also increased his season-to-date lead over "Late Late Show" in adults 18-34, to 42 percent (277,000 vs. 195,000) up from last year's 25 percent, and in adults 25-54, up to 12 percent (860,000 vs. 769,000) from 2 percent at this point last season.
