NBC spins the numbers for Thursday, November 29.

[via press release from NBC]

Thursday Results (Fox carried NFL football in New Orleans and the CW carried the game in Atlanta):

* At 8 p.m. ET, "30 Rock" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 3.6 million viewers overall) earned its highest 18-49 rating since October 11 and hit a season high in total viewers. Last night's overall viewership of 3.6 million is "30 Rock's" highest since March 15. In a highly competitive half-hour versus CBS's "Big Bang Theory," Fox's "X Factor" and ABC's "Last Resort," "30 Rock" grew versus its prior telecast two weeks earlier by 8 percent in 18-49 rating (1.3 vs. 1.2 on November 15) and is up 8 percent in total viewers (3.613 million vs. 3.336 million).

* It's the third-straight "30 Rock" to grow versus the prior Thursday telecast in total viewers.

Keep in mind that last season "Up All Night" added an average 51 percent to these next-day "live plus same day" ratings when Nielsen reported "live plus seven day" results, the biggest percentage increase for any comedy on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox.

"The Office" built on its lead-in by 58 percent in 18-49 rating and 31 percent in total viewers. Note that last season "The Office" added an average 50 percent to these next-day "live plus same day" ratings when Nielsen reported "live plus seven day" results.

* From 9:31-10:01 p.m. ET, "Parks and Recreation" averaged a 1.4/4 in 18-49 and 3.0 million viewers overall. "Parks" retained 74 percent of its lead-in from "The Office" in adults 18-49, 82 percent in adults 18-34 (1.4 vs. 1.7) and 87 percent in men 18-34 (1.3 vs. 1.5). "Parks" ranked #2 in the half-hour among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in men 18-34.

* From 10:01-11 p.m. ET, "Rock Center with Brian Williams" averaged a 0.9/2 and 3.4 million viewers overall. "Rock Center" maintained its rating from half-hour to half-hour in adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 (1.2 vs. 1.2) and grew by 2 percent in total viewers (3.5 million vs. 3.4 million).

In Late-Night Metered Markets Thursday night:

* In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.7/7; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.2/6 with an encore; and ABC's combo of "Nightline," 3.3/8; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.6/5 with an encore.

* At 12:35 a.m., "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.3/4 in metered-market households with an encore) beat CBS's first-run "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.4/3 in 18-49 with an encore) tied "Late Late Show" (0.4/2).
