"TONIGHT" AND "LATE NIGHT" EARN #1 FINISHES FOR THE WEEK OF OCT. 29-NOV. 2

JIMMY FALLON DELIVERS HIS BIGGEST 18-49 AND TOTAL-VIEWER RESULTS IN EIGHT WEEKS

SEASON TO DATE, JAY HAS INCREASED HIS YEAR-AGO MARGINS OVER 'LATE SHOW' IN VIEWERS 18-34, 18-49 AND 25-54

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 9, 2012 - NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" have generated #1 results for the late-night week of October 29-November 2, with Jay delivering a bigger 18-49 audience than CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" and Jimmy topping CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in every key ratings category.

Jimmy Fallon generated his biggest 18-49 audience and overall viewership in eight weeks, since the week of September 3-7, which benefitted from a high-rated overrun from the NFL season-opening telecast on September 5.

Note that Nielsen considers the October 29-November 2 week a "breakout" due to extensive disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy, and the week's data will not be included in season program averages.

Season to date, "Tonight" has stretched its leads versus one year ago over CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" in viewers 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54. In viewers 18-49, "Tonight" has established a margin over "Late Show" of 9 percent (981,000 vs. 904,000), eliminating last year's "Late Show" advantage of 2 percent. Jay has also generated a 25-54 advantage this season of 5 percent (1.250 million vs. 1.188 million) after trailing by 1 percent at this point last year, while stretching his 18-34 lead to 23 percent (340,000 vs. 276,000) up from last year's 10 percent.
