· "Undateable" out-rated Fox's original "Gang Related" in both half-hours in adults 18-49, as well as adults 18-34 and 25-54 and all key adult-female demos.

· All four episodes of "Undateable" to date have out-rated every episode of all three of last summer's original comedies on the Big 4 (NBC's "Save Me" and Fox's "Anger Management" and "The Goodwin Games") in adults 18-49.

· Facing competition from the NBA Finals, "Last Comic Standing" (1.4/4 in 18-49, 4.2 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) retained 88% of last week's results in adults 18-49 (with a 1.4 rating vs. a 1.6) and 91% in total viewers (4.247 million vs. 4.661 million). Despite the 10 p.m. hour, "Last Comic" held steady or grew from half-hour to half-hour in every key ratings measure.

· "Last Comic Standing" is up versus NBC's average in the time period last summer by +40% in adults 18-49 (with a 1.4 rating vs. a 1.0, L+SD non-sports) and +28% in total viewers (4.247 million vs. 3.321 million).
