"The Office" Finale Out-Rates Every Telecast of the Show for the Past 16 Months
NBC spins the numbers for Thursday, May 16.

[via press release from NBC]

Thursday Results:

NOTE THAT CURRENT FAST-AFFILIATE RATINGS ARE NOT ACCURATE FOR "THE OFFICE'S" 9-10:15 TIME PERIOD. ACCURATE, FULL-DURATION FAST NATIONALS ARE EXPECTED WITHIN A COUPLE HOURS.

* The current 2.9 rating in adults 18-49 from 9-10 p.m. for "The Office" out-rates every telecast of the show for the past 16 months, since January 19, 2012 (3.0). In total viewers, the 5.412 million from 9-10 also tops every "Office" since January 19, 2012 (6.020 million).

* The 2.9 from 9-10 out-rates all NBC non-sports results in the Thursday 9-10:15 time period since September 22, 2011 (3.3), the night of the 2011-12 Thursday season premieres. In total viewers, the 5.412 million from 9-10 is an in-season non-sports high for NBC in the slot since September 29, 2011.

* The 2.9 from 9-10 out-rates NBC's 9-10:15 season average in the time period by 107 percent (2.9 vs. 1.4,, L+SD, excludes live news and sports) and the 5.412 million in total viewers out-rates NBC's season average (3.328 million) by 63 percent.

* From 9-10 p.m., the "Office" finale is #1 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-34 and men 18-34 and tied with "Idol" for #1 in men 18-49.

* From 8-9 p.m. ET, a retrospective episode of "The Office" (2.0/7 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall) earned NBC's top 18-49 rating in the hour, excluding sports, since a special "Voice" ran in the time period on November 8, 2012. In total viewers, it's NBC's biggest overall audience in the hour since January 31.

* In a highly competitive time period versus season finales of CBS's "Big Bang Theory" and Fox's "American Idol," the "Office" retrospective tied "Idol" for #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-34 (2.1 rating each from 8-9) and topped "Idol" in men 18-34 (1.9 vs. 1.6).

* Reliable results are not yet available for the 10:15-11 p.m. ET telecast of "Hannibal."

In Late-Night Metered Markets Thursday night:

* In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.3/6; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.3/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.2/6.

* In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 Wednesday results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.4/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.0/5.

* From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.2/4 in metered-market households) tied CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).
