"Dracula" delivered NBC's highest in-season 18-49 rating in the slot, excluding the night of the capture of the Boston bombing suspect, since January 4. "Dracula" is up 38% versus NBC's regular-series debut in the slot last fall (1.3 on Sept. 28, 2012). Versus NBC's average in the time period last season in 18-49, "Dracula" is up 50% in 18-49 (1.8 vs. 1.2, L+SD non-sports).

· "Dracula" is the 2nd highest rated Friday drama premiere in three years in 18-49 (behind "Grimm's" 2.1 on Oct. 28, 2011) and before that, "Blue Bloods'" 2.2 on Sept. 24, 2010).

· "Dateline NBC" (1.3/5 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) moved to the 8 p.m. hour and matched its season high in adults 18-49 and delivered its biggest overall audience since Sept. 27. In the time period, "Dateline" is #1 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in women 18-34 and #2 or tied for #2 in adults 18-34, women 18-49 and women 25-54.
